Fifth Annual Burning Issues Workshop and Michigan Prescribed Fire Council Annual Meeting: Decision-Making for Fire-Dependent Systems

Feb. 5-6, 2019 @ Fort Custer Training Center, Battle Creek, MI

Wisconsin Wetland Science Conference*

Feb. 19-21, 2019 @ Madison, Wisconsin

Feb. 20, Jack McGowan-Stinski presents, "Prairie fen restoration case study: A mash-up of invasive and rare species, fire, and hydrology" in the Invasives Species: Big Picture session.

Join us Thursday, Feb. 21 to share your input via the listening session and working group, "Fire and Management in Wetland Ecosystems: Identifying Priorities for Information Sharing and Research."

Do you use fire as a management tool in your work with wetlands? Why or why not? What issues are limiting your use of fire in your wetland management? This facilitated session, designed to support networking and exchange among participants, will provide an opportunity for practitioners and researchers to discuss and document questions and issues that are limiting prescribed fire in wetland restoration and management in Wisconsin. The outcomes of this discussion will be used to inform the Fire Science Exchange Network’s future education and outreach activities across Wisconsin and to inform researchers, agencies, and other partners involved in developing or funding fire research in the Upper Midwest.

Midwest/Great Lakes Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration Annual Meeting*

April 12-14, 2019 @ Pella, Iowa

Friday April 12, join us for the symposium, "Incorporating fire research into land management and restoration work across the Midwest," organized by Dr. Yari Johnson, University of Wisconsin-Platteville, in partnership with the Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium.

During the poster session tentatively scheduled for Friday, we will share an update on information gathered on prescribed fire programs at field stations across the Midwest. Stop to discuss the question: "Can we improve the potential for fire research to inform management decisions?"
