Forest and Fire Learning Series

Future Forest Changes and Challenges

 

This is the third in the collaborative Forest and Fire Learning Series. As we begin the year with below-average precipitation and above-average temperatures, community concerns around forest health are growing, and land managers may be faced with significant challenges including wildfire, prescribed fire, insect infestation, diminished water quality and smoke. To address community concerns, foster understanding, and promote innovative collaboration between local land managers, MSI and partners will offer a three-part learning series. Over three evenings, we will cover local forest health, current conditions and the local managers who address them, and the changes that will shape our future forests.

On this final night of the series local leaders will address new management strategies, shifting ecosystems, and economic opportunities to improve future forests. The conversation will be directed to the future of our forests and the innovative ways we hope to adapt to known and unknown changes.
