March Nature Night: The Era of Megafire

March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The year 2017 was a record fire year with 9.1 million acres burning in the U.S. More than 680,000 acres burned in Oregon alone, in at least 33 different fires, one of which was a megafire that burned 191,000 acres. Join Dr. Paul Hessburg for an engaging, multimedia presentation about wildfire, its natural role in our Central Oregon forests, and how that role has changed. Learn how we’ve interrupted the natural fire cycle of our forests and how, with a rapidly warming climate, we are experiencing more of these megafires. Dr. Hessburg will discuss the many options we have to reshape the wildfire problem, and how we all can learn to better live with the coming wildfires.

This event is free, but registration is required.
