Attendees will understand the complimentary roles of fire preparedness and habitat improvement functions as well as post-fire management considerations and reclamation efforts within James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park.  Attendees will understand the impact of fire on Riparian woodlands to include a specific discussion of fires impact on cottonwood trees (Pupulus deltoids) and resulting management decisions.  We will discuss the challenges and innovative solutions associated with post-fire reclamation to include integrated weed management and active or passive reclamation efforts.   How to integrate non-traditional partners in habitat improvement will also be discussed specifically as it relates to fuel reduction/defensible space in the wildland urban interface.
