Latest On The Conservation Gateway

A well-managed and operational Conservation Gateway is in our future! Marketing, Conservation, and Science have partnered on a plan to rebuild the Gateway into the organization’s enterprise content management system (AEM), with a planned launch of a minimal viable product in late 2024.

The Fire Learning Network (FLN) helps people work together to increase the capacity and social capital needed to build ecosystem and community resilience. FLN landscape collaboratives engage in a range of multi-agency, community-based projects to restore landscapes that depend on—or are susceptible to—fire. By sharing decision-making and responsibility among stakeholders, the ecological, economic and social values provided by healthy landscapes are maintained, and the negative consequences of wildfire can be reduced.
From its inception in 2002, the FLN has taken an integrated approach to fire management, drawing on a broad—and growing —range of stakeholders and disciplines. This approach is now encompassed in the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Manage-ment Strategy, and the FLN supports the strategy's three intertwined goals: resilient landscapes, fire adapted human communities, and safe and effective wildfire response.

The work of the FLN is complemented by that of Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges (TREX, since 2008), Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network (FAC Net, 2013) and Indigenous Peoples Burning Network (IPBN, 2015).

The Fire Learning Network is supported by Promoting Ecosystem Resilience and Fire Adapted Communities Together (PERFACT), a cooperative agreement between The Nature Conservancy, the USDA Forest Service and several agencies of the U.S. Department of the Interior (Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management, Fish & Wildlife Service and National Park Service).
