The science and management of wildland fire is made up of many multifaceted continuums. A clear understanding of these continuums and their relationship to planning, preparation, learning, response, implementation, and evaluation activities is important in order to fully understand the magnitude and extent of what is involved in this increasingly complex area.

Join us for the launch of the Collaborative Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox (CCAST), an online portal for access to case studies contributed by practitioners across the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan deserts and the “Sky Islands” of the Madrean Archipelago. We will introduce this new initiative, provide an orientation to the CCAST website, and describe how you can contribute case studies to highlight your work!
