The American Wildfire Experience

The American Wildfire Experience is a nonprofit doing wildland fire advocacy and education through applied social science and outreach.

Through various projects and initiatives, AWE works to facilitate dialogue, communication, engagement, and education around the challenges and opportunities of our current wildland fire situation in the United States and abroad.

We’re interested in understanding and advancing our human relationship with fire across both social and ecological landscapes. 

We believe that sharing scientific data and knowledge tied together with human experience is the best way to tell the story of wildland fire and to have an impact on the way in which wildland fire burns across both our social and ecological landscapes.

Our Projects and Programs

The American Wildfire Experience has built several initiatives over the years to help share the story of fire.  We are continuing to develop additional programs and initiatives and encourage you to reach out if you’re interested in getting involved in our work!
