Brought to you by the Washington Prescribed Fire Council
The sagebrush steppe is one of the largest ecosystems in North America and one of the most threatened due to human land use conversions, non-native plant invasions, and wildfire. Fire and community resiliency practitioners and partners have requested opportunities to learn and share knowledge around fire ecology, behavior, management, and community engagement strategies in this unique landscape. In response to this need, and in light of the current global pandemic, this workshop has been adapted to a virtual series providing a broad overview of working with fire and communities in the shrub steppe by a variety of expert presenters. This webinar series will introduce us to the ecology of this unique ecosystem in Washington State, the past and current role and impact of fire on the landscape, and to many of the brilliant folks working every day to manage and protect critical habitat, wildlife, and communities living with fire in the shrub steppe.
