Era of Megafires

 

The Era of Megafires is a 60-minute multi-media presentation that combines the research of Dr. Paul Hessburg (Pacific Northwest Research Station, U.S. Forest Service) with the visual storytelling of award-winning film company, North 40 Productions. It’s presented in the form of fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes and animations.

The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts to talk about the risk of wildfire here in Santa Fe, the impacts fire could have and what the Santa Fe Fireshed Coalition partners are doing to prepare.

Panelists include:

Porfirio Chavarria, Wildland Urban Interface Specialist with City of Santa Fe Fire Department

Jens Stevens, Fire ecologist and researcher with USGS
