Short Description of Activity
First of four webinar session on Fire in PNW Forests for the CES Program organized by Oregon Broadbands. This session was about the natural role that fires play in forested landscapes and ecosystems in the region, and how climate change and human management has altered those roles, from the use of fire by indigenous people, to systematic fire suppression.
The webinar went really well, was well attended, and our audience was very engaged and glad for the baseline education on this topic. Mary gave a great Broads intro, Darlene presented parts of the Forest and Climate curriculum and Chandra ran the Q&A. Not sure how many participants we had from frontline communities even though our outreach included them. All other goals met.
These five Broads will submit their own pre- and post-event activity hours under their name/BB.
