General Information

This three-day technology transfer conference focuses on understanding interactions among major wildland fire, geomorphic and hydrologic processes and vegetation. The conference is designed to prepare land and resource specialists and planners to advise decision makers about what can be done to plan for and mitigate the effects of wildland fire—erosion, debris flow, flooding and water quality degradation.

The conference will bring together scientists, technical experts, planners and resource specialists/practitioners from communities, conservation districts, counties, state and federal agencies. The state-of-knowledge and technical tools will be presented. Participant interests and needs for further research and technology will be identified.

Opportunities to reduce predictable impacts from post-fire processes before a severe wildland fire occurs will be discussed. Through improved understanding and building collaborative relationships, we aim to improve the effectiveness and diversity of preparation, response and mitigation options and strategies used.

Please bookmark this site and visit often as new information will be posted here as it becomes available.

Who Should Attend

  • Resource specialists and planners who develop action alternatives to mitigate accelerated erosion and mass wasting caused by wildland fire
  • Scientists and technical/subject matter experts in predicting, understanding and mitigating effects of wildland fire
  • Managers and decision makers seeking an overview of the effects of wildland fire
  • General public and others with an interest in the art and science of erosion, flooding, debris flow and water quality following wildland fire
