Webinar: Fire’s Role in Ecosystem Health

Monday, April 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Speaker: Jeremy Webber, NJ Forest Fire Service. Sponsored by Rutgers

Abstract: For the fire element, we will explore how prescribed fire not only aids in protecting life and property from the catastrophic wildfire, but also how it supports ecosystem health. Prescribed fire used appropriately can benefit habitats for both flora and fauna, while also supporting hazardous fuel and invasive plant species mitigation efforts. Lastly, we will explore the unfamiliar benefits of how a wildfire essentially promotes habitat diversity and natural environmental processes.
