An upcoming webinar mini-series about Collaborative Fire Planning on the North Coast will introduce a new NW CASC-supported project to develop strategies for managing future wildfires in the North Coast Resource Partnership and Western Klamath Mountains planning areas and solicit local input on key questions and dynamics to consider as the project is developed.
Current NW CASC Fellow Skye Greenler’s NW CASC-funded research is contributing to a larger collaboration aimed at melding Western scientific and Indigenous Knowledge, ecological understandings and cutting-edge fire risk science to re-imagine fire management in the Western Klamath Mountains. This effort to create a shared vision for managing fire in the Klamath Mountains involves proactively planning for climate change, demonstrating the long-term benefits of tending this landscape with cultural burning and showing how these methods can help bring fire back to a highly-altered landscape.
