Field Workshop: Determining the most appropriate treatments before and after wildfire in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems

June 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Register for this FREE  field workshop.

Rick Miller, Professor Emeritus of Range and Fire Ecology, OSU; Cheri Howell, Ecologist, USFS Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest; and Brad Schultz, Extension Educator, UNCE, will discuss tools to rapidly assess resilience to disturbance (ability of a treatment area to recover), evaluate resistance to invasive annuals, predict successional pathways, and determine the need and suitability for seeding on potential vegetation treatment areas and areas burned by wildfire.  These discussions will be based on two field guides, A field guide for selecting the most appropriate treatment in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin, and A field guide for rapid assessment of post-wildfire recovery in sagebrush and piñon-juniper ecosystems in the Great Basin.”
