Understanding Fire in
the Front Range

A Preconference Session in Boulder, Colorado April 29, 2011 sponsored by the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) Teaching Outside the Box Conference

Much of the Front Range is highly flammable, an area where over-crowded forests, dense human habitation and local weather cycles create a very high risk for destructive wildfires. Naturalists from City of Boulder and Boulder County will team up to provide participants with a broad overview of fire as both a destructive event and important ecological process. Learn why wildfires have become so frequent, and how agencies are managing forests to reduce the risk.




Please send your questions regarding any forest management related issues to stumpmaker@gmail.com We'll find an answer for you.
