This 4-day (half-days), virtual- and field-based training (no registration fee) is open to all professional affiliations, and will introduce participants to: tools for selecting metrics that match management/restoration objectives; developing site-specific protocols for sampling; developing a monitoring handbook and monitoring protocols/program for your local ecosystems; how to establish long-term monitoring and quantitative/qualitative data for wildfire risk assessment; and evaluating the need for prescribed burns and other fuels treatments.
Field measurements will be conducted independently on home units, then data will be analyzed in the virtual classroom setting.
Lead Instructor: Brian Stearns, Huron-Manistee National Forests
