Tallgrass Prairie & Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium

Burning Issues Symposium:

How Do We Integrate Competing Objectives in Land Management and Restoration?

The Lake States Fire Science Consortium and the Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium will be hosting a day-and half workshop/symposium on January 13-14, 2015, to be held at Ft. Custer Training Center, Augusta, Michigan.

The intent of the symposium is to give land managers, researchers and fire practitioners an opportunity to hear from different areas of expertise in a format which will help us find solutions to issues that complicate our fire work. Registration will be forthcoming through the Michigan Prescribed Fire Council.

January 13 is a full day with five topic-driven sessions. Each session will include a 30-40 minute presentation by a primary speaker, shorter presentations by panel members, and a panel discussion.

The prescribed fire issues include:

● Invasive species and fire

● Herpetiles and fire (with special focus on eastern box turtle)

● Insects and fire

● Oak savanna restoration with fire

● Fire operations: constraints/barriers to implementation

On the second day, we will return for a morning of facilitated and directed breakout groups addressing these specific topics. Symposium proceedings will be published.
