Fire Ecology & Recovery

U.S. Forest Service Biological Science Technician Kate Santini and Park Ranger Alyssa Thornburg will lead us on the trail to Dry Creek Falls, through an area that was affected by the Eagle Creek fire two years ago to view evidence of the fire’s burn mosaics while learning about the effects of fire and wildlife habitat over time. We’ll cover basic fire terminology, fire hazards on the trail, and things to consider when hiking in a post-burn area.
