North Atlantic Prescribed Fire Science Workshop 2021

September 14 @ 8:00 am - September 16 @ 5:00 pm

Register ($55 per person per day or $165 for the entire three-day workshop)

September 14 – 16
All day each day

Location: YMCA of the Pines in Medford Township, New Jersey

NAFSE is are hosting this workshop to reset, recharge, and reimagine the future of fire science co-production. The last year has posed unimaginable challenges to fire scientists, managers, and wildland firefighters. We are thrilled to have a plan to reconnect in person!

Field trips to New Jersey Pine Barrens sites will stimulate discussion about regional prescribed fire science challenges and solutions. The workshop day will build a structure for region-wide prescribed fire science co-production and post-workshop coordination.

Join us for a three-day experience in a camp environment outdoors. Spend time in the field with fellow fire science stakeholders. Get your thoughts working in the amazing classroom of New Jersey’s prescribed fire landscape. Registration includes meals, refreshments, and on-site lodging (with payment arranged by August 27). We recommend registering for all three days of this workshop but full registration is not required. Travel cost assistance is available; please email NAFSEhelp@gmail.com for details.
