In furtherance of the purposes and principles of the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. et seq.), the Secretary may conduct any management activities that are necessary to maintain or restore fish, wildlife, and plant populations and habitats in the wilderness areas or wilderness additions designated by section , if the management activities are—. psychological support. For these reasons, fire is our fourth key to wilderness survival. Ideally, when traveling in the wilderness, it is best to carry multiple fire-starting tools, such as a lighter, matches, flint and steel, etc Even with these implements, starting a fire can be chal-lenging on rainy days with natural materials.   The Gila Wilderness has been touted as a model for restoration of natural fire regimes to forested ecosystems (Boucher et al., ). WFU is destined to become the new paradigm in fire management, especially in remote areas (Government Accounting Office, ). Although much is known about the opinions, knowledge, and motivations of restoration volunteers (Schroeder ; Tidwell & Brunson ), we know little about why land management agency employees.

Abstract. Two major factors affecting wilderness fire regimes and their management are climate variability and surrounding land use. Patterns in climate and housing densities are expected to change dramatically in the next several decades (IPCC ; Theobald and Romme ) with important implications for fire management and policy (Dombeck et al.

The National Forest Management Act requires that every national forest develop and maintain a land management plan, known as forest plans.

These individual plans set direction for the landscape and include- desired conditions, non-discretionary standards and guidelines, monitoring plans and wilderness and Wild and Scenic River recommendations.

Another issue the Forest Service now faces is that fires have grown in size and ferocity over the last 25 years.

The fire-fighting budget has grown to about 50 percent of the agency’s entire budget, which limits funds available for land management activities such as land restoration and forest thinning that could aid in fire suppression. Books at Amazon.

Wilderness areas often cry out for ecological restoration. Decades of fire suppression, livestock grazing, invasions of exotic species, and recreational impacts have left many U.

The second section explains the relationship between wilderness impacts and ecological processes. Despite running counter to scientific research and management goals to preserve both the natural and untrammeled qualities of wilderness—and, despite highly regulated “let it burn” policies of one kind or another instituted by the National Park Service and Forest Service in numerous western public lands beginning in the late s and early s—fire suppression.

Prior to joining the National Forest Foundation, Sasha led a collaborative planning program at Northern Arizona University, where she facilitated multi-stakeholder groups developing strategies around issues such as climate adaptation, forest restoration, post-fire restoration, conservation prioritization, water resources, and Tribal co-management.

A key objective of wilderness fire management is to “reduce, to an acceptable level, the risks and consequences of wildfire within wilderness or escaping from wilderness.” (FSM ). While fire managers may choose to suppress fire inside or outside of wilderness.

Lightning-caused wildfire in a wilderness area presents challenges and opportunities. Firefighters must access and contain the fire with minimal use of helicopters and gasoline-powered machinery. But they can use wildfire as a natural process to help reduce dangerous fuel loads, such as swaths of beetle-killed trees.Recognize the natural role of fire in your wilderness.
