A JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network
Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

In partnership with scientists and managers, we develop and sponsor webinars and web discussions. Webinars and interactive web discussions provide a forum for sharing information about specific topics or scientific resources in support of fire and fuels management.

We also maintain a Northern Rockies-relevant Webinar & Video Archive that can be searched by presenter, date, topic, and ecosystem.
