TNC’s Sycan Marsh Preserve in Southern Oregon is a unique “living laboratory,” a place where we, The Klamath Tribes, U.S. Forest Service, and a wide range of research partners are intentionally merging western science and indigenous knowledge to guide ecologically-based dry forest restoration and leverage lessons learned across the dry forests of Oregon and throughout the intermountain Western U.S. With FLN support, this site has been a hub of training for prescribed fire practitioners at all levels of experience and from all backgrounds. Additionally, research teams from all over the U.S. have been gathering live-fire data to investigate key questions facing forest and fire ecologists today.
