The Center for Fire Research and Outreach at Berkeley Forests

Given the importance of fire in many ecosystems, along with our dependence on and development into inherently fire-prone landscapes, we need to reach a sustainable coexistence with wildfire. Our goal is to develop and disseminate science-based solutions to wildfire-related challenges.

Drawing on the expertise of faculty and researchers, our primary goals are to:

  • Facilitate collaboration on innovative solutions to wildfire challenges;
  • Support education and training efforts focused on interdisciplinary approaches to wildfire research and management; and
  • Cooperate with stakeholders to fill their need for information and resources before, during, and after wildfires.
