Conference / Meeting
Coastal Quest, in partnership with Ventura County Wildfire Collaborative, is proud to present the first California Wildfire Conference. This three-day exchange will bring together a diverse community of wildfire practitioners to focus on understanding, preventing, and recovering from wildfires. The conference will be held from October 24-26, 2023, in Ventura County at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
Save the Date. Conference will be in Estes Park, CO
Over the last 38 years, wildfires have burned an average of 5.2 million acres annually in the United States. Much of the cost of recovery and restoration is borne by state and local entities and those residents and businesses who live and work in and around the fire scar. There are communities across the county that have been working hard on improving how we live better with fire for many years, yet the work has been especially slow within the post-fire sector.
Save the Date. April 15-19, 2024 in Boise, ID
