FOR 484 - Communities And Wildfire

Description: How can we design and implement a fuel treatment without creating or exacerbating conflict? How can we incorporate public needs and concerns into forest planning? How can we identify the right tools and techniques for communicating with populations about wildfire mitigation? These are all common questions and challenges that successful foresters and land management working in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) work to address. Communities and professionals working in WUI areas can have a significant influence over how land is managed, and when managers don't take them into consideration there can be substantial delays or lack of trust in those responsible. Co-convened with FOR 584. Letter grade only.
