At the Nexus of Wildfire & Water
Our 2nd evening will feature ongoing studies conducted by partners at Mountain Studies Institute (MSI) and Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS). Researchers Scott Roberts and Dr. Rhoades will share data and stories that detail the fascinating effects that wildfires have on stream chemistry, stream habitats, and aquatic life. They will also provide insight into what their research is saying about post-fire recovery in these systems.
