About Sarah Hamman
Sarah is a restoration ecologist with The Nature Conservancy, Washington, and an alumna of Colorado State University. She worked with CSU affiliates and multiple stakeholders to launch a Prescribed Fire Council in the state of Washington. The fellowship supported the planning and implementation of a two-day facilitated workshop that brought together diverse participants from government fire management agencies, non-profit conservation organizations and private landowners to address the social and ecological challenges to prescribed burning. The project was to encourage fire suppression organizations to consider more prescribed burning, collaborative wildfire management and building ecosystem resilience to altered fire regimes.
