Megafires, wildfires over 100,000 acres, and their impacts on people and ecosystems is a serious and growing issue to our region. Our communities, homes, businesses and our very way of life are threatened. If we are going to make efective progress towards increasing fire resiliency, we must increase awareness and stimulate conversation about this important issue across all levels of society. Through education, we can change the way we receive fire and smoke.
The Era of Megafires is a 70-minute, multimedia, traveling presentation hosted by Dr. Paul Hessburg, who has conducted fire and landscape ecology research for more than 27 years. The presented material comes in the form of fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes and features the work of wildfire photographer, John Marshall. Think Ted X mixed with snappy documentary shorts and compelling photography. The videos are produced by award-winning documentary film company, North 40 Productions, of Wenatchee, WA.
