Course Description
This
course will use the 2012 Hello Fire as our classroom. The fire is a wonderful
example of low to moderate intensity fire that has been allowed to recover
naturally. Course participants will explore the old-growth forests of the Butte
Fork Canyon. Topics covered will include fire management, wildland fire use,
minimal impact fire suppression tactics, post disturbance response and recovery,
as well as stand development and dynamics in mixed-conifer habitats.
