As forest fires rage throughout California, The Pasadena Group of the Sierra Club is proud to present a timely and informative program “Forest Fires and their long-term impacts: The Effects of Post-Fire Logging on the habitat of the California Spotted Owl Habitat and other wildland species”.
Chad Hanson presents “The Effects of Post-Fire Logging on California Spotted Owl Habitat and Occupancy.” He will also discuss the ecology of forest fires and the need to focus fire management resources on protecting communities, rather than fire suppression in backcountry wildlands.
Chad is Director and Principal Ecologist of the John Muir Project, which he co-founded in 1996 after seeing the devastation to our national forests while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. The program will also include discussion of the likely effects of the current Ferguson Fire on forest habitat in and near Yosemite National Park.
Doors open at 7 pm, program begins at 7:30 pm. The program is free and the public is welcome.
The John Muir Project is an affiliate of Berkeley-based Earth Island Institute. Chad, who was recently elected to the Sierra’s Club’s national Board of Directors, lives in Big Bear City in the San Bernardino Mountains.
