Why should you attend?
As more people locate their homes deeper in fire-prone forests, more of those homes may be affected by wild fire. Climate change is expected to increase the frequency and size of fires, but grazing, fire suppression, and past logging practices have changed how fires behave today.We hope you will join us in developing strategies for collaboration across all sectors to effectively address the problems and challenges of living in the Wildland Urban Interface.
South Central Washington RC&D Council, Department of Homeland Security, National Association of RC&D Councils, The Nature Conservancy, and the International Code Council all invite you to join for this interactive conference to discuss issues regarding the Wildland Urban Interface and strategies for increasing collaboration and success. There will be diverse speakers and experts from across the state and nation representing federal, state, and private sectors to share their viewpoint, challenges, and opportunities.
We hope to see land managers, homeowners, elected officials, planners, fire fighters, and many more – because this conference really is about getting everyone together that plays a role in protecting our communities and our natural resources from wildfire. Thank you!
