In 2020 we explored how fire has shaped Minnesota's natural systems and how land managers could work towards safely reintroducing fire. At our 2021 Fire in Minnesota Ecosystems Workshop we will focus specifically on fire in boreal forests.

This three day virtual event will explore the broader ecological, cultural, and social importance and impacts of fire in boreal systems, through both the historical and current lenses. Discussions will address the unique challenges for implementing, suppressing, or researching fire in boreal systems, and hear various perspectives about communities living with fire.


Offered in collaboration with the Joint Fire Science Program and the Lake States Fire Science Consortium.
