Congress Theme

Life with Fire:
Prescriptions for Resilience
 

More prescribed fire, cultural burning, and beneficial wildfires are urgently needed to manage the escalating magnitude of wildfire impacts on society and to achieve conservation goals in landscapes around the world. The 2021 Fire Congress will bring the wildland fire community together to discuss strategies to sustain native wildlife and biodiversity, enhance ecosystem services and resilience, mitigate climate change impacts, and reduce undesirable impacts on human and natural communities. Participants are encouraged to share and explore proactive solutions that connect research to desired fire management outcomes. While we encourage proposals related to the congress theme, we also accept proposals on a variety of wildland topics
