The Fire Continuum Conference, co-hosted by the International Association of Wildland Fire and the Association for Fire Ecology, is less than one month away! We look forward to seeing you in Missoula, May 21-24, 2018, for a great week exploring the range of science and management activities that take place before a wildfire occurs, activities needed during a wildfire event, and the post fire activities and fire ecology.
