February 9th, Becca Carden

Fight Fire with Fire: what are catastrophic wildfires and what can we do about them?

Please join us for our first SUTS talk of the spring semester in person or virtually at 7pm, Feb 9, with Becca Carden! Arrive at 6pm for kids’ table and natural history displays before the talk!

Catastrophic wildfires are becoming more common all over the western United States, including right here in central Texas. These fires are scary, destructive, and very expensive to put out. But did you know that fire is actually beneficial for some plants and animals? In this SUTS talk, we will learn about plant and animal adaptations to fire, and how we can use tools like prescribed fire to conserve fire adapted species while also reducing the chance of dangerous catastrophic wildfires.
