Though the event is focused on New Mexico, you’ll find many of the topics are relevant across the Southwest.

Day 1: To equip tribal or tribal-affiliated natural resource managers and practitioners with an understanding of the burn planning process to work towards good and thorough surveying, burn plans, and implementation.  Together we’ll learn about elements of prescribed fire planning, which parts of burn plans can be co-created, and BIA’s process for approving burn plans. We’ll share lessons learned from challenges and successes throughout.

Day 2: This workshop session will bring everyone together to share challenges, concerns and roadblocks that are affecting Tribal projects. We will break into small groups to discuss these obstacles and brainstorm ideas and solutions on how to overcome them. The expected outcome is to have a clearer idea on common challenges and obstacles affecting Tribal projects and how we can tackle these collectively.

Day 3: Field visits in Jemez Pueblo and Sandia Pueblo, New Mexico.

This event is sponsored by the Forest Stewards Guild, New Mexico Forestry Division, The Nature Conservancy, and Trees, Water & People.
