"Fire belongs in the mountain southwest and unless the peaks flatten, the monsoon evaporates, the seasons homogenize, or the biota vanishes, those fires will continue." - Stephen Pyne
The Bandelier Fire Management program encompasses many disciplines, including fire suppression, prescribed burn, and ecological monitoring professionals. Working with our partners, we protect human life and structures, while managing wildfire for the good of our fire-dependent landscape.
