Flat Rock Fire Workshop
September 13 @ 1:00 pm - September 14 @ 4:30 pm
The North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, SUNY-Plattsburgh, and W.H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute are partnering to host a workshop on the 2018 wildfire and fire science research at Flat Rock State Forest in Altona, New York.
The Flat Rock workshop includes:
- an afternoon fire science symposium,
- an evening community panel discussion, and
- a field trip (please pre-register for the Saturday field trip. Lunch is included).
The symposium will feature presentations and posters on the geology, fire history, and ongoing research in the jack pine forest ecosystem at Flat Rock. The evening panel will provide community members an opportunity to learn about the 2018 wildfire operations and the relationship between fire and the human communities nearby. The field trip will offer participants a boots-on-the-ground look at wildfire management and field research.
For more information, please visit the North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange website.
There is no cost to attend any of these events, but we ask that you please pre-register for the field trip so that we can have an accurate count for lunches.
