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
EVENTS & WEBINARS
How could have so many homes and businesses burned so quickly in the Wine Country Fires?
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 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.
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.
This webinar presented by Kirk Davies, ARS, is the third in our 2018 Webinar Series: Moving the Needle on Cheatgrass: Putting What We Know into Practice.
This webinar covers existing products that are effective and how they are applied in different situations. It will also introduce new emerging herbicides. Richard D. Lee, Integrated Pest Management Specialist, BLM National Operations Center, presents.
This webinar was the second in our 2018 Webinar Series: Moving the Needle on Cheatgrass: Putting What We Know into Practice.
This seminar is being presented by Matt Reeves at the Missoula, MT, Rocky Mountain Research Station Fire Lab.
While fuel treatments in the dry conifer forests of the inland western U.S. are effective at reducing wildfire spread and severity at the stand-level, how effective are they at changing wildfire activity at the landscape scale?
This webinar presented by Tom Monaco, ARS, is the first in our 2018 Webinar Series: Moving the Needle on Cheatgrass: Putting What We Know into Practice.
The GBLCC Conservation Planning Atlas (CPA) is an important aspect of our effort to engage a landscape focus and best available science toward improving collaboration and maximizing conservation efforts in the Great Basin.
Bear grass (Xerophyllum tenax) and California Hazelnut (Corylus cornuta var. californica)are two Nontimber Forest Products (NTFPs) harvested by American Indians for basket weaving in the Pacific Northwest
One of the greatest challenges facing landscape conservation is how to ensure ecosystem-wide conservation goals, such as those articulated in Landscape Conservation Designs, can effectively inform local management plans and actions.
