MINNEAPOLIS, MN — The third annual workshop of Fire in Minnesota Ecosystems: Boreal Forests will take place virtually on April 6, 7, and 8th. The event this year will explore the broader ecological, cultural, and social importance and impacts of fire in boreal forests through both historical and current perspectives. The discussion will address the challenges of implementing, suppressing, or researching fire in boreal systems and the communities affected.
Gloria Erickson, Dovetail Partner’s community wildfire project manager and St. Louis County firewise coordinator, will be co-presenting with Todd Armbruster, former Lake, and Cook County firewise coordinator, about the importance of building strong relationships and partnerships across land ownership boundaries when developing strategic land management plans for forest health and wildfire resiliency.
