Past Present, and Future Uses of Prescribed Fire

Continuing the WSU's Extension 2021 summers series on fire, we are not going to explore the realm of intentional uses of fire as a management tool.

Utilizing fire for a multitude of reasons, indigenous burning shaped the plant and animal communities of the Inland Northwest for thousands of years.
