The Era of Mega Fires

August 30, 2016 @ 12:00 PM

Sponsored by The Wildfire Project, an affiliate of the Wenatchee Valley Museum

The Era of Megafires is a 60-minute, multi-media, traveling presentation hosted by Dr. Paul Hessburg and North 40 productions.  Hessburg draws on his 27 years of conducting fire and landscape ecology research for the Pacific Northwest Research Station and the University of Washington to deliver a fast-moving, short, topic-based conversation interspersed with compelling video vignettes. As the kickoff event for the Wenatchee Valley Environmental Film Series, the museum is the first stop for this presentation expected to make appearances in venues throughout the Northwest.

The Wildfire Project is part of a community effort to educate people and hopefully shift societal views regarding wildfires, said project organizer Sara Rolfs. “Our project focuses on how we as a society can shift our cultural views about fire and learn to embrace it as inevitable and crucial to the health of our landscapes. We are hoping we can help people learn to co-exist with fire more peacefully through learning, adapting and acting proactively.”
