Our mixed-methods approach will make use of spatiotemporal Geographical Information System (GIS) data, local knowledge and ideals, descriptive case studies, as well as statistical modeling, specifically forest-based regression, to create a clearer picture of what the future of the region could look like given three encompassing stakeholder-driven scenarios of future land use and land cover change. Our goal is to contribute to the body of knowledge by producing a suite of fire-wise BMPs that can not only be used in the Owyhee region of southern Idaho and western Oregon.
