Fire Series Part 1
Fire Ecology Stewardship Strategies: From Fire-Resistant to Fire-Adapted

What is fire ecology and how do we sustainability live in our natural fire regime? What can we do individually? What can we do collectively? This training will explore land management techniques for living in fire-prone areas. Whether your land burned in the Complex Fire or never in your lifetime, learn directly from foresters, conservation specialists, grassland managers and fire ecologists.

This event will host several panelists including experts from the Sonoma Resource Conservation District, Santa Rosa Junior College and Pepperwood Preserve, Sweetgrass Grazing, and more. Each giving a brief presentation, followed by a moderated panel discussion and finally we will open to questions from the public.

We understand that the reality of our fire ecology is fresh in the minds of our community members- those who lost their homes and those that did not. This discussion may posit controversial ideas learned in the aftermath of the Complex Fire. Some might even say “radical.” We believe science-based approaches and those that bring us in closer harmony with natural systems are all worth discussing. We come together to learn, to discuss various approaches, and to respectfully debate views. Come with your questions!
