How 3D Glasses and Photos from the 1930s are Making Forests Healthier with Kerry Metlen, Forest Ecologist at The Nature Conservancy

The safety of both nature and human health are at risk of uncharacteristically severe wildfires across the west. Climate change is increasing the likelihood and severity of wildfires while simultaneously making them more difficult to control. Fortunately, there is much that we can do to change the effects of fire in the forest. To this end, communities, conservation organizations and businesses have come together to approach forest restoration with a new, collaborative approach to protect the lands and waters on which they depend. In this talk, Mr. Metlen will explore the science behind wildfires and how it is protecting drinking water, community, recreation, and abundant wildlife in this iconic landscape.
