City Club of Missoula Presents:
THRIVING IN WILDFIRE COUNTRY
Fire season in Western Montana often stretches for several months – no longer just a few weeks. Intense and fast-moving wildfires in the areas where the forest and neighborhoods meet have become more frequent. Experiencing wildland fire is part of living in Missoula — but there are ways to adapt. To help Missoula reduce the risk of an uncharacteristically large wildfire, the Missoula Ranger District of the Lolo National Forest, the State of Montana, and other partners are working together to develop an all-lands focused fuels project called “Wildfire-Adapted Missoula” or WAM.
On June 10, a City Club Missoula panel including a fire scientist, a federal forest manager, and a county commissioner will explore why and how we can reduce our risk and what being “wildfire adapted” means. Join us to hear Missoula District Ranger Jennifer Hensiek, Forest Service Researcher Mark Finney, and Commissioner Dave Strohmaier talk about efforts to make our surrounding forest and community more resilient. Karen DiBari of the National Forest Foundation will moderate.
