Post-Wildfire Remediation on Federal Lands
The wildfires of 2017 were monumental in their expanse, severity and cost to suppress- and the damage doesn't always end when the fire is put out. Loss of vegetation and fire-induced water repellent soils can trigger increased runoff which causes erosion, flooding or debris flows many miles downstream of the fire. This presentation will provide an overview of the effects of wildfires on natural resources and describe the post-fire emergency response (BAER) program implemented by the Forest Service and other federal land management agencies. Typical emergency response actions and treatment examples will be described along with examples of longer-term post fire remediation needs and costs.

After the Wildfire - Hydrologic and Water Quality Effects of Wildfire
Group Watch Available!

This webinar will present information on the hydrologic and sediment transport effects of wildfires. The presenters will draw on experiences with post fire hydrology from wildfires including the Cerro Grande Wildfire that caused heightened flood risk for a nuclear facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the Missionary Ridge, Fourmile, Black Forest, and Waldo Canyon Wildfires in Colorado. The webinar will present the science behind hydrologic changes from wildfire and will provide examples of tools and methods that can be used to quantify changes to peak discharges, runoff volume, and sediment yield in a risk-based context.

Pacific Northwest Regional Webinar | Erosion Control: A dive into specie selection for the Inland Northwest and Southern Idaho
Group Watch Available!

The Inland Northwest is a diverse landscape of constantly changing topography, micro climates, and annual precipitation levels. In order for everyone to enjoy these areas that we live in, we need to keep the soil in place to the best of our ability. This webinar will explore the ins and outs of various plant material that fit these different niches in regards to erosion control and beautification. The goal is for attendees to walk away feeling more comfortable when making informed decisions on seed specs for erosion applications.

Recording is prohibited | Attendees are never permitted to record any of IECA education events including, but not limited to, online courses, webinars and live presentations.

IECA is the foremost organization for those involved in or concerned about soil erosion control. Membership (in IECA) tells others you take erosion control seriously and you want to help make a difference.
