The Association for Fire Ecology and International Association of Wildland Fire have partnered to bring you an enlightening and innovative event! This not to be missed event will be held on the beautiful University campus in Missoula, Montana the week of May 21 - 24, 2018.
Wildland fire science and management are defined by continuums. The Fire Continuum Conference will take you on a journey from science and management activities that take place before a wildfire occurs through the post fire activities and fire ecology.

Art Exhibit and Competition
  Join us by sharing your expression in our Wildland Fire themed Art Exhibition. All art media is welcome and encouraged including textile, painting, wearable, photography, ceramics, collage, poetry, sculpture, carving, etc. Participants are invited to donate their work to a silent auction fundraiser supporting the "Mike DaLuz Memorial Student Travel Scholarship Fund" and the "IAWF Student Scholarship Fund."  
Wellness Lounge   
We all know that our health and wellness should take top priority, but sometime we need a reminder, especially while traveling. Take advantage of the group led physical activity sessions we will be providing, such as Yoga, Running, Hiking and more. We will also be offering a wellness lounge where you can relax and get away for a few moments. 
Volunteers Needed  
Get involved by donating some of your time during the conference as a volunteer. Anyone is eligible to volunteer; however, students will have first preference.  
You will be eligible for a discount on your registration fee based on the number of hours you volunteer.

Attached Meetings  
In a time of dramatically reduced or restricted budgets, we recognize that it is difficult to justify travel to multiple conferences and meetings and we think that doubling up on travel is a fiscally responsible way to attend professional meetings. We invite groups and committees to hold smaller meetings in conjunction with The Fire Continuum Conference.
