Cascadia TREX Prescribed Fire Training Exchange Starts

September 20

Registration is now open for the 2021 Fall Cascadia TREX. Come learn and burn in Roslyn, WA this fall!

This fall the Washington Prescribed Fire Council and partners will be facilitating TREX training burns in Central Washington with federal, state, tribal, municipal, and private landowners. As burns come in to prescription and become ready to burn, we will begin to mobilize resources. During this time, TREX participants will receive regular communications about these burning and training opportunities and will be able to participate as their schedule allows.

There will also be non-fireline classroom and field workshops planned throughout this fall. Exact details and dates to be announced.
