Description: Many of Minnesota’s most productive forest systems are fire-dependent. With a focus on fire, this day-long symposium will go over the ecology, management and the potential for increased use of prescribed burning. Speakers include regional researchers, forest and fire managers. There will be a panel discussion about the role of fire in managing jack pine, red pine, and oak-dominated systems.
