WSU Extension/DNR Webinar – Wildfires in Western Washington: A Different Animal

June 30, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

WSU Extension/DNR Webinar – Wildfires in Western Washington: A Different Animal
There is no shortage of news coverage, research, publications, and educational programming available to address the issue of wildfires in the dry forests of eastern Washington and the rest of the interior Pacific Northwest. These areas have been hit hard by wildfires due to decades of fire suppression and require a massive forest restoration effort to reduce fuel loads.
But what about fires in the wet forests of western Washington? How do wildfire behavior and forest fire ecology differ in this region? How does a changing climate impact the risk of catastrophic fires and what does this mean for how we manage forests and protect homes here?
Attend this free webinar to hear DNR experts discuss the science of wildfire in western Washington and the steps you can take to prepare.
When and Where
Tuesday, June 30, 6-8 p.m., via Zoom
Cost and Registration
