Join Heather Heward from the Idaho Prescribed Fire Council for the Fall 2022 “Know Your Fuels, Know Your Fire” Workshop. The workshop aims to provide landowners and managers with training to understand their current fuel conditions and the ability to measure change after treatment. The workshop runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, at Turnbull Wildlife Refuge in Cheney, Washington.
Participants will meet local land managers and hear about the goals and objectives of a fuels treatment project. Topics explored during the workshop include the process of how to set up a plan for monitoring and review the methods for photo point, fire behavior fuel model selection, fuel loading, and basic stand measurements. Participants will then collect data, compile it and share it with the land manager.
Cost is $65 to attend, plus $60 for optional supplies (sampling frame/field guides). Register for the workshop HERE.
Recommended pre-work includes Introduction to the Photoload Sampling Technique and Understanding and Selecting Fire Behavior Fuel Models. Register for pre-work courses at https://wildlandfirelearningportal.net/
