Join experts at this workshop to examine and discuss the contributions of the past century of wildland fire research, how this information may be used by managers and decision makers working with wildland fires and communities, and the most pressing research needs for the coming decades.

Wildland fire science can inform more strategic and cost-effective planning and management strategies for living with wildland fire. For many decades, the federal government has supported and conducted research on the causes, conditions, behaviour, and management of wildland fire to support these kinds of strategies.

This workshop will be recorded and the presentations will be made accessible online for viewing 7-10 days after the meeting.
