Naturalist Talks: Fire and Flora

July 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Join Grassroots Ecology and Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District for an evening of virtual learning and discussion!

About this Event

California native plants and ecosystems have fascinating relationships with fire. How do different habitat types and plant species respond to fires? How do these interactions shape fire-resilient landscapes and our management of them?

Join us Thursday evening, July 30th to explore these questions. We will be featuring two speakers:

Nikki Hanson, ecologist and Environmental Educator at Grassroots Ecology, will be presenting on California fire ecology, both past and present. She will also share ways to restore a healthy balance to the landscape and close to home.

Craig Beckman, Area Manager at Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, will highlight their multifaceted work to ensure wildland fire resilience. He will present Midpen’s current fuel management efforts, as well as their longer term planning and methods for and with fire.

Q&A and discussion will follow the presentations.

The talk will take place over Zoom. The Zoom meeting link will be included in the confirmation email as well as on the online event page accessible after registration.

This event is open to all. Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs.
