Webinar shares how fire shaped Oregon

The OSU Extension Fire Program team is hosting a webinar 11 a.m. – noon May 2 on Not All Flame is the Same: Oregon’s Diverse Fire Ecology.

May is Wildfire Awareness Month, and the Oregon State University Extension Fire Program will take participants on a journey of fire throughout Oregon. In this webinar, a team of regional fire specialists will share stories about how fire has shaped Oregon landscapes historically and currently. Understanding fire’s role in the place you live can help you become better prepared for fire and smoke, and more aware of the local ecological setting.

The webinar is for those who are just becoming acquainted with wildfire concepts and may not be able to distinguish between different vegetation types or the ways that wildfire varies across the state; and practitioners who may not have a background in fire/forest ecology.
