On Tuesday, June 13, at 3:00pm EDT, the Consortium of Appalachian Fire Managers and Scientists is hosting a webinar presentation on how fire shaped Appalachian forests before the fire exclusion era.


Charles LaFon of Texas A&M will discuss the a recent fire history synthesis publication and current research on fire and forest composition. An open question and answer period will follow his remarks.


Pre-registration is not required and you can connect with the webinar at it’s start here.


Wildifre is not just a “western states” issue and we look forward to attending it to learn more about how wildfire and fire ecology influences all regions of the country.
