The Northern Rockies Fire Science Network (NRFSN) seeks to enhance communication between managers and scientists about fire management issues and research products. The NRFSN aims to facilitate interactions between managers and scientists; identify fire and fuel research needs; and improve access to knowledge and tools to serve those needs.
The Northern Rockies Fire Science Network is part of a national network of consortia established by the Joint Fire Science Program to accelerate the awareness, understanding, and adoption of wildland fire science information by federal, tribal, state, local, and private stakeholders in the Northern Rocky Mountains of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. The NRFSN is being developed in collaboration with Joint Fire Science Program, Rocky Mountain Research Station, National Forest System, National Park Service, the University of Montana, University of Idaho, Montana State University, and Salish Kootenai College.
LANDFIRE Webinar Series
LANDFIRE has teamed up with the Northern Rockies and Southern Rockies Fire Science Networks, and the Joint Fire Science Program to offer a three-part webinar series. The webinar series is designed to introduce LANDFIRE data and tools, examine an on-the-ground application project in the Rockies region, and look at ways to customize LANDFIRE data for use on specific landscapes and projects. The series is designed to help land managers and others understand and use data resources to assist them when making decisions regarding large landscape projects. Because the suite of LANDFIRE tools are based in vegetation history and current conditions, they can be applied in both fire and non-fire related activities and are particularly suited for running scenarios and considering management plans.
