The Colorado Wildland Fire Conference is held every 18 months.

Our upcoming conference will be in  April 2023;  followed by a conference in the fall of 2024.

This conference is geared toward professionals working proactively to improve wildfire outcomes in Colorado communities and landscapes such as Mitigation Specialists, Emergency Managers, Firefighters, Researchers, Foresters, Developers and Policy Makers. Anyone wishing to learn more about how they can reduce their community’s vulnerability to wildfire is welcome to attend.

The planning committee is comprised of individuals from these organizations.

The theme of the 2023 conference is Accelerating Adaptation and Managing Expectations.  

With wildfires rapidly outpacing our efforts, this conference will focus on how we can accelerate action and develop robust strategies to help our communities adapt.
