Guam Pacific Island Forestry Professionals Workshop

HWMO, through U.S. Forest Service (USFS) grant funding, is entering an exciting phase for our organization and its partners in Guam and Yap. On April 3-7, HWMO Executive Director, Elizabeth Pickett, collaborated with Guam Forestry and USFS professionals doing work on Yap to lead a half-day workshop on community-based wildfire ignition management. The workshop, entitled Wildfire Prevention and Mitigation Strategies and Opportunities for a Pacific Islands, was well-attended, signs of good things to come for our collaborative work in the Western Pacific.
