Fire Ecology - Saturday, June 24th - Heil Valley Ranch Open Space
Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM (MDT)
Date: Saturday, June 24th - Heil Valley Ranch Open Space
Time: 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Instructor: Robin Keith
Fire is a dynamic and vital part of Colorado ecosystems. While it can bring destruction to homes in the wildland-urban interface, it also provides necessary renewal to the forests we love. Join us on a visit to areas that have burned in recent years to explore the forces of change that shape forest structure and species composition. Learn to identify species common to fire-dependent ecosystems and how to spot the evidence of Colorado’s fiery past and present. By deepening our understanding of this powerful force of nature, we can learn to better coexist with it and perhaps even appreciate some of the changes it can bring.
