    Using Fire and Fire Surrogates to Enhance Wildlife Habitat in a Time of Transition.
    7-8 pm. ADF&G has been involved in fire management across the state for decades. Oftentimes, we experience successful moose hunts in old burn scars, but that can also happen where other disturbances have occurred like timber harvest areas. In select parts of the state, biologists and foresters work together to conduct prescribed fires, apply specific silvicultural techniques, and manage wildfire to enhance wildlife habitat. The Delta Junction Bison Range is the site of recent prescribed fires and mechanical treatments to stimulate both shrub species for moose forage and grouse habitat, and graminoids that entice bison onto state lands. More lessons have been learned across Delta, Tok, and the Kenai Peninsula on different types of treatment. This helps managers improve their approach over time. Biological studies of moose, grouse, and bison response support these management techniques and provide evidence for success. We will explore these topics further along with the scale of efficiency. Register in advance for this meeting.
