Collaborative Fire Management Case Studies from the Colville National Forest
This webinar will provide examples of successful cross-cultural partnerships for managing fire and building community resilience in a changing climate. In this webinar, USFS fire ecologist and tribal liaison Monique Wynecoop will share two case studies from the Colville National Forest, in which the Spokane and Colville Tribes and non-tribal partners conducted collaborative, interdisciplinary fire management projects that incorporated diverse values, cultures and knowledges to meet multiple fire management goals. Monique will share lessons learned for building trust with tribal communities and conducting collaborative fire management through a restorative justice lens with tribes as beneficiaries.

Monique Wynecoop
Area Fire Ecologist & Tribal Liaison @U.S. Forest Service & Northern Rockies Fire Science Network
I am Pit River/Maidu and my three children are Spokane Tribal members. Since 2008, I have been working as a Region 6 Fire Ecologist for the US Forest Service (USFS) as part of a two-person NE Washington Area Ecology team, within the ancestral homeland of the Spokane, Kalispel, and Confederated Colville Tribes in Northeastern Washington. In addition, I’m a Fire Ecologist/Tribal Liaison for the Northern Rockies Fire Science Network, as well as a board member for Northwest Scientific Association and Diversity & Inclusivity committee member for the Association of Fire Ecology. It’s my goal that my children and all future generations of tribal people feel that their best interests are addressed in the management of natural resources, on and off the reservation. My work has emphasized promoting tribal sovereignty on and off the reservation by sharing our stories and history and promoting cross-boundary collaboration with tribal and non-tribal agencies.
