The Forestry & Natural Resources Extension Fire Program assists in identifying landscapes in highest need of a strategic focus of resources to reduce wildfire and landscape health risks at a statewide scale. We also assist with the implementation of cross-boundary projects on the ground in priority landscapes and provide education and outreach throughout the process.
We acknowledge that Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary's River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. All Extension programming throughout the state of Oregon happens on traditional homelands. To learn more, click here.
