Celebrating 40 years of Fire Ecology and Management

Burning and Learning

University of Idaho’s Fire Ecology and Management program, one of the oldest in the country, is celebrating 40 years of fire education, research and outreach. The college began offering the first fire science courses in 1978, and in 2008 began a full bachelor of science program in fire ecology and management, the first of its kind in the nation. We have educated hundreds of fire researchers and managers who are now leaders in industry, universities, government and nonprofit organizations across the country. We have more than 30 faculty members, research scientists and graduate students working on a range of fire science issues including soils, smoke, policy, management, fire use, firefighter safety and more.

Help us celebrate our long tradition of excellence and our exciting future:
