Wildfire impacts and shapes landscapes and ecosystems in dramatic ways and poses significant challenges to conservation in Hawaii. This place-based training is affiliated with the Hawaii Conservation Conference but does not require conference registration to participate.
- Learn how climate, vegetation, and human activities create hazardous wildfire conditions
- Learn how to apply and integrate fire-related resources and information through a problem-based learning exercise
- Understand the challenges of integrating fire management and conservation objectives in the field.
- Share your own experiences, ideas, and approaches to conservation as well as land and fire management.
