I am a staff member of the Fire Learning Network (FLN), which is related to the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network. I am the team’s lead for developing the Indigenous Peoples Burning Network, which supports Native American communities that are revitalizing their traditional fire cultures in a contemporary context. I have served as a conservation employee of The Nature Conservancy for 25 years, and it has been my honor to work with many partners to develop prescribed fire programs that benefit both people, plants and other animals. My favorite thing about fire is seeing wildflowers bloom in the months following a controlled burn.

Indigenous Peoples Burning Network (IPBN)

The Indigenous Peoples Burning Network is a small but growing network that supports indigenous peoples' efforts to restore traditional burning practices in their ancestral homelands.
