Burning Issues in Alberta's Forests: Workshop and Field Tour Proceedings

On July 10 & 11, 2013, researchers from the Healthy Landscapes Program's fire history research team gathered together in Hinton to present details of their ongoing research, and to conduct a field tour of significant sites. We have captured the information in short videos, full-length videos (to come), photos and documents.

Fire history research update - an overview of the project to date, its accomplishments and its aims.

Enjoy the gallery of field tour photos here.
