THE CHANGING FACE OF WILDFIRE: HOTTER, BIGGER, FASTER

September 25 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is FREE. Please sign up to reserve your seat!

We all know wildfires can happen in our valley, but no one really expected one would come so close to our homes and businesses. Is the Lake Christine Fire a sign of the “new normal” for wildfires in Colorado? What’s fueling the increase and intensity of wildfire across the West? How can the community be better prepared for the next disaster?

Officials from local fire departments, fire management, the Forest Service, and Gary Ferguson, author of “Land on Fire: The New Reality of Wildfire in the West,” will share their Lake Christine Fire experiences, what our future looks like and what we can do.

Presented by Aspen Community Foundation and hosted by The Arts Campus At Willits.
