Fire is Essential and Irrepressible in Western Forests

‘Numerous books and commentaries have described the century-long evolution of forest fire policy in the United States. However, rarely have these accounts focused on one of the seminal factors that provoked a transformation in policy and fire-control policy- namely, expanding knowledge of fire ecology.” – Stephen F. Arno

Retired research forester with the U.S. Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station Stephen F. Arno will share information about fire ecology and fire policy in the west with an illustrated lecture. Find out how fire management can be used to increase ecosystem health. Renowned in the field, Dr. Arno’s information comes from decades of research. He is also  co-author of ‘Ponderosa: People, Fire, and the West’s Most Iconic Tree’.
