  • Description of Event:

    Please join us for the 2018 Southern Plains Wildfire Forum, hosted by the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub in collaboration with the Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program and the University of Oklahoma. This meeting will focus on the recent wildfire events in 2016 and 2017 in portions of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. The day will consist of both presentations and panel discussions covering topics including common weather conditions associated with wildfire, impacts and recovery perspectives, and management strategies, such as prescribed fire, to reduce future wildfire risk.

    We welcome any individuals who were affected by recent wildfire events or are interested in learning about and discussing these topics to attend.
