9:00-10:00…………Program:   “Fire Ecology of the Southern Appalachians”

Adam Warwick, Fire & Stewardship Manager, The Nature Conservancy

Mr. Warwick will present on the role of fire in the southern Appalachian Mountains over the past several thousand years until the present, as well as what Transylvania Co. residents can do to adapt to a future with more wildfires. Adam has been overseeing The Nature Conservancy’s land stewardship in western North Carolina since 2012. The majority of his time and efforts has been devoted to scaling up prescribed burning on public lands to restore open woodlands to the southern Blue Ridge’s pine and oak ecosystems. Adam is a NWCG Type 2 Burn Boss, and the NC Prescribed Fire Council recognized Adam as the Prescribed Burner of the Year in 2022. He has led multiple landscape teams on behalf of the Southern Blue Ridge Fire Learning Network.

Adam grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee, and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Tennessee and then obtained a Master of Science degree in Fisheries and Wildlife from the University of Missouri. He then spent 10 years with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in overseeing wildlife management and supporting burning for Tate’s Hell State Forest. Today, he lives in Mills River, NC with his wife, Joyce, and 13-year-old daughter Cameron; two Australian shepherds and two cats. In his spare time, Adam enjoys fishing, hunting, whitewater kayaking, and mountain biking.
