Lake States Fire Science Consortium's Burning Issues Symposium

Feb 2, 2016 through Feb 3, 2016 (All day)
Fort Custer National Training Center (FCTC) in southwest Michigan
Following up on the success of the 2015 Burning Issues Symposium, we're returning to Fort Custer National Training Center (FCTC) in southwest Michigan on February 2-3, 2016. Many partners have worked to convene an event designed to help tear down the walls or road blocks that keep us from fully achieving our objectives or from performing at full capacity.
Day One: This wildland fire symposium is designed for land managers, researchers, resource specialists, and fire practitioners to hear from invited speakers with many different areas of expertise.
Day Two: Three concurrent breakout sessions offer opportunities to focus on one topic - with an emphasis on identifying gaps in knowledge and communication, and to support working toward solutions to issues that complicate our collective wildland fire work.
Thanks to Fort Custer Training Center we are able to keep costs low.
The registration fee includes lunch, snacks and coffee on both days.
Early Bird registration - $55 by December 18, 2015
