The Wisconsin Prescribed Fire Council is pleased to present our first ever webinar, Increasing Prescribed Burn Capacity in Wisconsin – Getting More Fire on the Ground Safely! This event is the first of a series of discussions focused upon increasing prescribed burn capacity in Wisconsin!

This event will feature presentations from WDNR Fire Ecologist and Natural Resources Research Scientist Jed Meunier and WPFC Vice Chair and Researcher Stacey Marion on the historic, current, and future use of prescribed fire in Wisconsin and updates to the Wisconsin Prescribed Fire Needs Assessment. A panel discussion featuring diverse perspectives within the prescribed fire community will follow. Panelists from the WDNR, US Forest Service, The Nature Conservancy and Quercus Land Stewardship Services (a WPFC supporting member!) will discuss current fire initiatives, future goals, and how to achieve those goals.

Come prepared to join the discussion and engage with our panelists. We look forward to igniting the conversation of why and how to get more fire on the ground safely with you! To register, please click the widget below!
