High Park Fire: From Science to Action & Recovery
The High Park Fire was the second largest wildfire in Colorado’s recorded history and will leave an indelible mark on area residents, the broader community, and the environment. Time and information are needed to understand and process such a high-impact event. What happened over the course of the fire? Why? What happens next?
This all-day symposium will provide attendees with a science-based understanding of the High Park Fire, its impacts on the environment, and actions for restoration and recovery.
Hear lessons and insights and ask questions about the High Park Fire with CSU scientists, federal and state agencies, and people involved in the fire, including: Incident Commander Bill Hahnenberg, Larimer County Undersherriff, USDA Forest Service, wildfire and ecology experts, and more.
Learn about and interact with organization like Wildland Restoration Volunteers and Colorado State Forest Service that are mobilizing restoration activities and ways to volunteer and support High Park Fire recovery!
The symposium will also feature an adjoining exhibit hall and academic poster session presenting information, resources, and volunteer opportunities related to the High Park Fire. The exhibit hall will be open throughout the symposium at the CSU Lory Student Center North Ballroom.
