The Era of Megafires - Yakima

  • The Seasons Performance Hall 101 North Naches Avenue Yakima, WA, 98901 United States (map)

The Era of Megafires is a 70-minute, multi-media, traveling presentation hosted by Dr. Paul Hessburg. Hessburg is with the Pacific Northwest Research Station, in Wenatchee, WA, and the University of Washington, Seattle, where he has researched wildfire and landscape ecology for more than 27 years. The presented material comes in the form of fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes. Think Ted X mixed with snappy documentary shorts. Megafires are wildfires over 100,000 acres and are exceptionally destructive to communities, wildlife and our natural spaces. 

This event is free and open to the public.
