Deeply Talks: Fire & Drought–The Extremes Become Routine
August 30, 2018 | 1:00PM PDT
The American West has entered an era of permanent water scarcity, a marked shift from previous periods of episodic drought. The same can now be said for fire: In California, there hasn’t been a month without a wildfire since 2012.
Join us for a conversation about the ways in which water and wildfire management intersect, and about the West’s adaptation to its new, and far from normal, reality.
We'll be joined by experts Crystal Kolden, associate professor of forest, range, and fire sciences in the College of Natural Resources at the University of Idaho, and Van Butsic, cooperative extension specialist at the University of California, Berkeley.
