Reel Science: Era Of Megafires says
6:30PM - Multimedia Presentation: Wildfire in the West with Paul Hessburg, PhD, EFHR Team Leader & Research Ecologist at the USDA Forest Service

Megafires, wildfires over 100,000 acres, and the destruction caused by them is a serious and growing issue to our region. Our communities, homes, businesses and our very way of life are threatened. If we are going to make effective progress towards increasing fire resiliency, we must increase awareness and stimulate conversation about this important issue across all levels of society. Through education, we firmly believe we can change the way we receive fire and smoke.

The Wildfire Project is a 60-minute, multi-media, traveling presentation hosted by Dr. Paul Hessburg, who has conducted fire and landscape ecology research for more than 27 years.
