EVENTS & WEBINARS
The Rangeland Analysis Platform (RAP) is a free, online tool that helps landowners and natural resource managers track vegetation through time and plan actions to improve America's grazing lands.
This webinar pertains to all mountainous regions of the western US but will slightly emphasize the southwestern US.
raining locations are dispersed throughout Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Attendees will travel to several remote sites during their stay to take advantage of prescribed burning and learning opportunities with a variety of agencies, fuel types, and challenges such as urban interface.
The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) Northwest Chapter, the Society of Wetland Scientists Pacific Northwest Chapter invite symposia and organized workshop proposals for the 2018 joint regional conference, Restoring Resilient Communities in Changing Landscapes, to be held October 15-19, 2018 at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, Washington.
The Idaho Law Review invites you to its symposium, Law, Planning and Wildfire in the Wildland-Urban Interface: The Future of Government and Governance of Disaster in the West.
This workshop will take place in Tucson, AZ. November 27th will consist of a one-day workshop on fire effects to archaeological resources. November 28-29th will be the interactive workshop
This joint conferences offers a forum where past experience and lessons learned are documented, current work showcased, and emerging ideas/technology presented to provide a strong foundation that will facilitate setting a course to the future that addresses and responds to developing challenges locally, regionally, and globally.
This conference, Fuels of Today Fire Behavior of Tomorrow, will be in Albuquerque, NM.
The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) Office of Policy Analysis has invited LANDFIRE, to present a seminar, Foundational All-Lands Data for Improving Decisions in Land Management.
Don't fear the fire: Using prescribed burning to build pine forests resilient to drought and beetle attack
The southern region of the US leads the nation in prescribed fire applications partly as a result of close collaborations among federal, state, and private land managers.
Members of the Great Basin Chapter of SER will describe the efforts, past and future, from scientific and management perspectives, and address the needs and prospects for an adaptive management approach
How could have so many homes and businesses burned so quickly in the Wine Country Fires?
The 31st biennial workshop will be at the Northern Hotel in Billings, MT.
This two-day course (cost: $450) provides a foundation for developing and running state-and-transition simulation models of landscape change using the free ST-Sim software. The course covers state-and-transition simulation modeling concepts, how to use ST-Sim to create models of landscape change and terrestrial carbon dynamics, and how to run the models and interpret the results. Examples of state-and-transition simulation models in a range of ecosystems will be presented, including models of both vegetation dynamics and land use/land cover change.
This workshop will bring local area and regional managers and scientists together to share recent research findings and discuss their implications for vegetation and wildland fire management.
This webinar will discuss how targeted grazing can reduce fuels to prevent wildfire in shrub-grasslands
A special half-day webinar symposium provides an in-depth review of three invasive grasses (cheatgrass, medusahead, ventenata) in the Western US.

Steve Popovich, BLM Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation National Program Lead, discusses how to perform straw inspections for use in restoration projects.
Communicating climate change: Adaptation planning and community outreach of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation
This webinar will introduce the CTUIR and their First Foods concept that drives their governance, provide an overview of anticipated climate impacts to these precious cultural resources, and discuss the development of climate change science communication that ties impacts to First Foods and other aspects of tribal life.
This meeting will be at the Bristlecone Convention Center, 150 West 6th Street in
This Critical Issues webinar explores recent trends in wildfires and changes in contributing factors / drivers of these hazards and features case studies of wildfire policy and management strategies in the western and southern United States.
This webinar will discuss the process as well as take home messages from area-wide demonstration projects on cheatgrass reduction. Roger Sheley, USDA ARS, presents.
This webinar is the last in our 2018 Webinar Series: Moving the Needle on Cheatgrass: Putting What We Know into Practice.
This webinar gives a brief introduction to multiple LANDFIRE datasets and then explore how two National Forests are working to tweak LANDFIRE data to better meet their needs.

What: Interpreting and Measuring Indicators of Rangeland Health (NTC# 1730-37). Taught by specialists from BLM, USGS, ARS, and NRCS.
This webinar reviews last year’s fires and look ahead toward conditions for this year.
This webinar presented by Brian Mealor, UW and Mike Pellant, BLM-retired, is the fourth in our 2018 Webinar Series: Moving the Needle on Cheatgrass: Putting What We Know into Practice.
This webinar discusses various agricultural and forestry fires and their impacts on air quality, including smoke and other air emissions. Basic Smoke Management Practices (BSMPs) will be discussed as means to minimize air quality impacts from prescribed fires.
