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.
