The Mid Klamath Watershed Council hosted the Klamath Fire Ecology Symposium on April 25-27, 2008. The symposium brought together land managers, scientists, practitioners, landowners, students, and anyone with an interest in understanding fire’s role in the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains.

The symposium focused on several case studies particular to the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains involving prescribed burning, recent wildfires, wildland fire use, appropriate management response and current research in the area. The eventual goal of this conference is to create a vision for getting fire on the landscape in a way that protects life, property, improves forest health, and enhances resources. The presentations from the symposium are now available in pdf format below.
