Dr. Chad Hanson, who is a forest and fire ecologist with the John Muir Project, and a National Director of the Sierra Club gave a talk entitled Fire in our Southwestern Forests: How can we protect our forests, our homes and ourselves? at Collected Works Bookstore on Sunday, September 23.

Dr. Hanson discussed our evolving understanding of the role of mixed-intensity fire in our forests, and the often seemingly counter-intuitive lessons that are emerging from the current science. He also discussed the importance of forest protection as climite change mitigation, and the ways that communities can safely coexist with wildland fire.

Videos of the talk are available online:
