Andrews Forest Monthly Meeting May 7

Friday, May 7, 2021

Andrews Forest Monthly Meeting: Friday, May 7, 9-11 AM

For our winter and spring 2021 meetings we are discussing fire. The 2020 fire season will leave its mark on ecosystems of the western Cascade Mountains, inside and outside the boundaries of the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest and LTER site. Our history of fire-related research and long-term inquiry contribute to our existing knowledge of fire in the region and provide us a unique opportunity to understand the consequences of these large fires on our complex mountain landscape. With these talks we hope to spark further discussions among the research community.


"Wildfire & Climate Change Modeling in the Pacific Northwest & Southwest" presented by John B. Kim, Biological Scientist, PNW Research Station

“Social Change is Challenging the Ethics of Conservation” presented by Jeremy Bruskotter, Professor, School of Environment & Natural Resources, Ohio State University. 
After our presentations, we will move into a science cafe discussion, around the topic of fire. Everyone is welcome to participate! 

Our meetings follow the academic year. Next meeting: June 4.  9-11 AM.
