FACT Presents Prepare for Wildfire Preparedness Week
Join Fire Adapted Community Trout Lake (FACT) for a free screening of “Era of Megafires”, a film by research ecologist Dr. Paul Hessburg that unpacks the rise in enormous, destructive wildfires across the western United States. Hessburg discusses how historical land management and a changing climate have led to our new reality, and offers thoughtful, practical solutions. The multi-media presentation includes recorded excerpts from Hessburg’s talks interspersed with video vignettes and the work of wildfire photographer John Marshall.
After the 60-minute screening, stick around for a Q&A with wildfire professionals working in the Trout Lake area, including representatives from Washington Department of Natural Resources, the U.S. Forest Service, and Mt. Adams Resource Stewards.
