SFFC News:

SANTA FE ― The Greater Santa Fe Fireshed Coalition is hosting a workshop based on the recent report “A Statement of Common Ground Regarding the Role of Wildfire in Forested Landscapes of the Western United States.”

The workshop is 3-6 p.m. Wednesday, April 3 at the Santa Fe Convention Center and closely examines the report with the expertise of one of the co-investigators, Craig Allen, as well as scientists Tom Swetnam, Ellis Margolis, Jens Stevens, and Matt Hurteau. Together, these scientists have over 90 years or research experience in New Mexico's forests. Group conversation will be facilitated by former city council member and Santa Fe community leader, Rosemary Romero.

The working group who produced this report sought to identify, and partly explain, areas of scientific common ground and divergence among fire researchers, focusing specifically on dry conifer forests, in support of informing high-quality public discourse, policy, and management.

The workshop will address similar issues among researchers, land managers specific to the Santa Fe area, and the public. The agenda invests time into group dialogue and interactive break-out sessions.
