Two timely presentations on local and regional fire management. Margo Robbins, Executive Director of the Cultural Fire Management Council located on the upper Yurok Reservation in far Northern California, and co-founder and co-lead of the Indigenous People's Burn Network, will discuss how these two entities are helping tribes revive their traditional burn practices. Lenya Quinn-Davidson, Area Fire Advisor for the University of California Cooperative Extension, will discuss recent efforts to bring prescribed fire back into the hands of landowners, community members, and cultural practitioners. Prescribed fire is used to increase biodiversity, reduce fire risk, and increase landscape and community resiliency.
