EVENTS & WEBINARS
Do you suffer from biocrust blindness? What you need to know about biological soil crusts in the Great Basin
This webinar will discuss the distribution of biocrusts in the region as well as their recovery from disturbance and restoration.
This webinar presents information about the effects of grazing and fire on grassland wildlife and opportunities to manage grazing lands to accomplish production and wildlife goals.
Rangeland Fire Protection Associations in Oregon and Idaho: implications for fire adaptation and agency-community relationships
This webinar will introduce Rangeland Fire Protection Associations (RFPAs), which are unique partnerships wherein ranchers and the Bureau of Land Management work together to suppress rangeland wildfires.
Course Description: Fundamental principles of the science of ecology. Major topics covered by the course include the physical environment, how organisms interact with each other and their environment, evolutionary processes, population dynamics, communities, energy flow and ecosystems, human influences on ecosystems, and the integration and scaling of ecological processes through systems ecology.
Nevada Section Society for Range Management's Summer Field Tour and Business Meeting will be June 14 & 15, 2017 in Boulder Valley, NV.
Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition - Biennial Summer Conference
Fire prevention specialists, fire information officers, trainers, environmental educators, students and other community members—especially teachers—are invited to a free, two-day workshop on the science of wildland fire offered at the Missoula Fire Sciences Lab.
RSVP now to email@example.com for this tour.
Recently burned in the 2016 Clark Fire, Indiana Summit Research Natural Area (RNA) provides an excellent opportunity to observe fire effects in an unharvested forest in the Sierra Nevada.
The 2017 AFE International Fire Congress will offer an exciting blend of learning opportunities for fire managers, natural resource professionals, policy and administrative leaders, and the academic and research community.
The National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy Workshop—All Hands, All Lands: Implementation Rooted in Science will be in Reno, Nevada April 25-27, 2017.
In this webinar hosted by the Society for Ecological Restoration, presenters will share the rationale and successive steps required for the efficient delivery and use of seeds in ecological restoration.
This webinar will present the Unmanned Aerial Systems (Drone) Resource Management Technologies – Fuel Load and Noxious Weeds Program, which can map, identify, treat, quantify and measure fuel loads and noxious weeds utilizing hyperspectral and LiDAR sensors combined with drone technologies.
The BLM National Training Center in conjunction with the GBFSE are offering a Restoration of Sagebrush Ecosystems class, NTC#1730-60 the week of April 10th in Reno, NV. Although this class focuses on the restoration of sagebrush ecosystems, the techniques discussed in the class apply to a variety of different ecosystems.
This webinar presented by James Furman, U.S. Forest Service Liason, Air Force Wildland Fire Center, Eglin Air Force Base, is being hosted by the Southern Fire Exchange.
Great Basin Consortium Conference 2017: Charting a Course for Rangeland Science in the Sagebrush Biome
View the agenda. The 2017 Great Basin Consortium Conference will be held at the University of Nevada, Reno and will focus on implementation of the Integrated Rangeland Fire Management Strategy Actionable Science Plan.
This webinar hosted by the California Fire Science Consortium will be with Stephen R. Miller.
The talk will focus on a four-step approach to integrating wildfire planning for the wildland-urban interface (WUI) through a variety of planning and implementation processes that work across departments within local governments.
Northwest Basin and Range Ecosystem Symposium: Promoting collaborative and inclusive landscape-scale conservation in a changing environment
The Northwest Basin and Range Synthesis invites locals, scientists, managers, and the public to gather in Lakeview, Oregon for the 2017 Northwest Basin and Range Ecosystem Symposium.
Webinar: Assessing the impacts of post-fire drill seeding on archaeological resources: a case study from the Owyhee Uplands in southwest Idaho
This webinar was presented by Kirk Halford, BLM, Boise.
The National Native Seed Conference connects Research, Industry, Land Management, and Restoration professionals, providing the premier opportunity to develop relationships and share information about the collection, research and development, production, and use of native plant materials.
Greater Sage-Grouse Symposium - Identifying and managing threats to Great Basin greater sage-grouse populations
This symposium will address the effects each of these components have on sage-grouse populations with the best available science and provide recommendations for management.
The theme of this year's SRM conference is Red Rock and Rangelands, and it highlights the
juxtaposition of spectacular geology and diverse rangelands in the region around St. George. The southwest corner of Utah is an ecotone at the convergence of three major rangeland regions: the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave. Range management in this region is especially complex due to the high biophysical variability, high concentration of natural wonders and associated recreation activities, and diverse set of stakeholder groups. We especially welcome proposals that highlight the variety of rangeland environments and habitats, multitude of rangeland land-uses, and diversity of people who manage and depend upon rangelands in the southwestern US.

“Be part of the conversation! Join the Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative’s (LCC) Public Forum Jan. 23 – Feb. 6, 2017. You can help shape the landscape-scale conservation work happening in the Great Basin.
The Public Forum is a short-term, interactive website where visitors can learn about the LCC’s recent efforts and provide input on our future work, including:
- Future webinar topics and other opportunities for information sharing
- Rangeland fire prevention, management and restoration
- Expanding resistance and resilience work to forests and woodlands
- Working with tribal partners
- Suggestions for new Steering Committee members
A kick off webinar, Jan. 23 at 10:00 AM (PST), will start the event and introduce the topics of the Forum.
Register now! We encourage people to register even if they are unable to attend the webinar to receive a notification when the Forum is live. Registration is quick, easy and free! Anyone is welcome to join.
