The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Summit is a statewide conference that is organized by representatives from state and federal agencies and local non-profits. The WUI Summit is an opportunity for local leaders, emergency responders, businesses, and citizens to learn from each other and stay informed on current science and practices in mitigating risk of wildfires in the wildland urban interface.
The 2017 WUI Summit will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Sheraton Airport Hotel. This year, the conference will have three concurrent tracks that focus on the technical, "How does it work?", collaboration, "Who can I work with?", and action, "What can I do?". There will also be two field trips: One will visit the northern bosque in Corrales and Rio Rancho, and the other will visit East Mountains. Saturday is a free family-friendly half day where the general public can learn and engage.
