Fire is elemental, fire is powerful, fire can and does destroy homes. But does fire destroy our forests? What happens when forests are allowed to regrow naturally?
Travel with us into some of Oregon's treasured public lands that were impacted in this and previous years' fires, and see how nature and wildlife rebound and what we expect to see in the future. See first-hand how fire is a vital force of renewal for fish, wildlife, pollinators, water, and the climate, and gain inspiration from images and stories of the regrowth of places like the Columbia Gorge and Opal Creek.
Featured speakers include Ralph Bloemers, Crag Law Center, who has spent three years documenting wildlife and natural regeneration in the Gorge and other parts of Oregon, and Dwayne Canfield, Executive Director of the Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center.
