Weekly CA fire science seminar series

January 19 @ 3:00 pm - May 11 @ 4:00 pm PST
California Fire Science Consortium Logo

Webinar series registration. This online seminar series will cover the breadth of wildland fire research relevant to California and introduce researchers to new topics and research groups across the state. Topics will include fire weather, wildfire risk, fire ecology, remote sensing, emissions, fire dynamics, fire modeling and public health. Featuring many early-career researchers, this series is aimed at a highly interdisciplinary academic audience but is open to anyone interested in these topics.

Monitoring rare plants with drones

January 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST
dwarf bear poppy

Webinar registration. Description: The desert city of St. George, Utah is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country. Three federally listed endangered plant species that grow directly in the path of this juggernaut development are at extreme risk of further decline and possible extinction. With the help of drones, deep learning technology and innovative restoration methods, we are engaged in research and active management to give these unique and beautiful species a better chance at long-term survival.…

Invasive species, native seeds, and grasses

January 21 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PST
Sage Steppe on fire

Webinar registration. Disturbance events, such as overgrazing and the catastrophic fires, in our shrub steppe landscape can kick-start a negative feedback loop with invasion of noxious weeds. These invasive species can have a direct effect on services and ecological benefits provided by the shrug steppe landscape. Learn what we can do to minimize the spread of invasive plant species and how native seeds and grasses can be used to restore this brittle system.

Fire effects on plant and lichen diversity across fire regimes

January 21 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm PST
Biological soil crust

Webinar registration. In this talk, Dr. Jesse Miller will discuss recent research exploring post-fire plant and lichen communities across numerous wildfires that span substantial ecological gradients, using multiple approaches to characterize both fire effects (e.g., local and landscape-scale fire severity) and plant and lichen communities (e.g., phylogenetic diversity, dispersal strategies, and taxonomic diversity)

Wildland stories: Dendochronology with Dr. Justin DeRose

January 22 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PST
Fire-scarred wood

Webinar registration. Dendrochronology: The trees that surround us have a story to tell, yet so many of us have no idea what that story is. What is dendrochronology? How old is the oldest recorded tree? Can trees get scars? Where are some of the oldest forests located? These are just some of the questions we aim to answer with our guest Dr. Justin DeRose, Assistant Professor of Silviculture and Applied Forest Ecology at Utah State University.

When wildfire hits: One community’s journey to recovery

January 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm PST
Logo for OR State Univ Extension Fire Program

Webinar registration. Last summer’s wildfire events impacted many Oregonians. These events reminded us of how important it is to plan and be prepared for wildfire. Planning and preparing for wildfire can feel like a massive endeavor. What can we do? Who can help? How do we continue to build wildfire adapted and prepared communities? Every community is unique; however, you are not alone. We can learn from our neighbors whether they are next door, across the state or even in…

Seeds of Success: Fort Belknap Indian Community/BLM/SER native seed and grassland restoration program

January 27 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST
People seeding in sagebrush

Webinar registration. Description: The Fort Belknap Indian Community (FBIC) Native Seed & Grassland Restoration Program was designed to meet DOI, BLM, and Plant Conservation and Restoration Program Strategic Goals, via partnerships with FBIC and the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER). Launched in 2019, and led by an Indigenous PI, this Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK)-based program focuses on developing genetically appropriate native plant material for habitat restoration; inventorying and prioritizing plant populations; and implementing and assessing restoration efforts through monitoring. Working…

Co-managing wildfire risk across boundaries (CoMFRT)

January 27 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST

Webinar join link. Wildfire risk is shared across landscapes, ownerships, and administrative boundaries. Consequently, successful efforts to mitigate this risk depend on coordination of individual and collective actions across sets of public and private institutions and individuals associated with managing components of fire-prone landscapes. We need to understand how these diverse sets of actors, including individual residents, communities, non-profit organizations, and local, state, tribal, and federal agencies can and do interact and make decisions that affect fire and risk based…
