Short Description of Activity

Fire is a reality, now and into the future, so how do we live with it? We’ll take a look at ways communities can adapt to live with and prepare for fire through firewise landscapes and other measures, and explore the future of fire on the landscape in an era of climate change.


Fewer attendees this time, but great speakers and attendance. Aaron told a heartening story about losing his house in Talent/Phoenix, OR to fire. Sara shared some amazing footage from her upcoming film. And Madeline tied it all together with a great synopsis of why home hardening/defensible space can help protect our forests.
