Prescribed burning has been out of reach for many private woodland owners in Oregon, despite its benefits to wildlife and forest resilience. Oregon State University’s new Extension Fire Program is seeking to change this by providing training to landowners and fire professionals, increasing funding, and building cross-boundary partnerships. In this webinar, you will hear about the Fire Program is supporting steps towards a fire-adapted culture and how this can help small woodland owners.
Presented by Chris Adlam, OSU’s Extension fire specialist for southern Oregon. In this position, he seeks to partner with community leaders, agencies, landowners and tribes to support the region’s efforts in adapting to a future with more fire. Chris received his PhD in Ecology from the University of California, Davis, where his work focused on supporting tribal initiatives for revitalizing traditional burning practices. Burning with Prescribed Burn Associations in California gave Chris a taste of the transformative power of putting fire into the skillful hands of tribes, ranchers, and trained rural residents. He believes in the Extension motto “Helping People Help Themselves” and looks forward to working with the Fire Program to build capacity and support for prescribed fire and forest restoration across private and public lands. In his free time, he enjoys birding, whittling, outdoor adventures, and raising pigs.
