Fires and Forests

FireOn October 17, 2013, we joined for a presentation by fire ecology photographer John Marshall on “Fires and Forests in Washington—Past, Present, and Future.”

John’s presentation covered fire history in our state, including the Olympic Peninsula. He also highlighted the critical role of fire in ecosystems, and the hazards and policy issues surrounding wildfire management.

This event, co-sponsored by the Speakers Bureau of Humanities Washington, was held at the Cotton Building (607 Water St., Port Townsend). It was free and open to the public. $5 donations were appreciated to help defray costs.
