Forest & Fire Learning Series: At the Nexus of Wildfire & Water
6:00pm / Mountain Studies Institute Facebook page and YouTube channel
In preparation for Wildfire Awareness Month beginning in May, Mountain Studies Institute is gearing up for its 4th annual Forest & Fire Learning Series that will take place every Thursday in April 6-7pm. This livestream e-vent will feature a Q&A session following presentations intended to educate and engage our community on a variety of topics that include wildfire management, fire-adapted communities, the connection between wildfires and water, adaptations to the challenges of 2020, the chemistry of wildfire smoke and air quality, seasonal outlooks for 2021, and personal stories of living with fire.    The 2nd evening in a series of 5 evening e-vents 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.    SPEAKERS   - Chuck Rhoades, Ph.D.: Research Biochemist, Rocky Mountain Research Station   - Scott Roberts, M.S.: Aquatic Ecologist, Mountain Studies Institute    We invite you to join the conversation, ask questions, and help to inform a community approach to living with fire!   Photo: Michael Remke
