This year, the conference will have three concurrent tracks in mitigating risk of wildfire in your community.

There will also be two field trips: One will visit the northern bosque in Corrales and Rio Rancho, and the other will visit East Mountains. Saturday is a free family-friendly half day where the general public can learn and engage with experts in wildland fire.

Online registration is open until March 24, 2017 ($65 for attendees and $100-150 for exhibitors, depending upon non-profit status).
