Virtual and interactive workshop on prescribed fire in northern Minnesota
September 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Title: Prescribed Fire: Forest History and Today’s Implementation
September 30, 2020
6:00 – 7:30 p.m. CT (7:00 – 8:30 p.m. ET)
The use of fire on the landscape is a hotly debated topic, despite being a natural process in our northern forests. It is seen as a vital tool by land managers to improve forest health and spur regeneration.
This webinar will look at the history of fire and its benefits in the NE region of Minnesota. Then, virtually, take a walk in the woods with us to see and hear how the Superior National Forest land management team is using fire as a tool to restore the forest and wildlife and plant habitat within its borders.
This event is hosted by Dovetail Partners and supported by the U.S. Forest Service – Superior National Forest. The webinar agenda includes speakers Lane Johnson from the University of Minnesota Cloquet Forestry Center, and Timo Rova the West Zone Fire Management Officier from the Superior National Forest.
