In cooperation with the New Jersey Forest Fire Service, we are hosting a field-based workshop in May 2022. The Fire Camp will provide opportunities for students and early-career natural resource professionals to develop technical skills through the ecological application of prescribed fire.​

The Camp will accept up to 12 persons to participate in a 5-day session that explores various prescribed fire applications for hazardous fuel reduction, habitat management, silvicultural, and/or other ecological objectives. Through this hands-on program, participants may have opportunities to work on individual tasks in open National Wildland Coordinating Group (NWCG) Position Task Books (PTB); hone technical skills relating to prescribed fire application; and expand their understanding of fuels, fire behavior, and fire ecology. Participants will work in the New Jersey pinelands and engage with fire practitioners, fire scientists, foresters and other natural resource professionals to supplement fire effects and fire use learning.​

The fee for Camp participation, which will cover meals, lodging, and all Camp activities, is $300. Financial assistance is available by writing to NAFSEhelp (once accepted).​

Additional participation requirements are detailed in this document– please read the entire document thoroughly before applying.
