Megafires (wildfires over 100,000 acres) and the destruction caused by them is a serious issue for the region (for instance, last year’s Yellowstone fires). Communities, homes, businesses and our way of life are threatened.

So, in an effort to increase awareness about the issue, Dr. Paul Hessburg (who has conducted fire and landscape ecology research for more than 27 years) presents The Era of Megafires, a 70-minute, multi-media, traveling presentation that features fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes and features the work of wildfire photographer, John Marshall.

Free showing this Friday April 7th, 4pm at the Bozeman Hilton Garden Inn on Commerce Way in Bozeman, no registration needed.

**Dr. Paul Hessburg, Ph. D. is a Research Ecologist with Pacific Northwest Research Station, U.S. Forest Service. He has been studying historical & modern era forests of the Inland West for the last 32 years, publishing extensively in leading national & international journals. His work documents large changes in forest conditions and how these changes, along with climate change, have set the stage for large & severe wildfires. This presentation is an outgrowth of his research and his concerns for the future.
