“Climate Change and Wildfires: Can the Forests Recover?” is the topic for the spring forum presented by the Douglas County Global Warming Coalition and Umpqua Watersheds.
Colorado State University Fire Ecologist Dr. Camille Stevens-Rumann will explore how warmer temperatures and longer dry periods are altering recovery and changing the landscape, according to a release from event organizers. Stevens-Rumann is the Assistant Professor of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship at CSU. Her research has focused on challenges facing disturbed lands, understanding species, and ecosystem responses to those disturbances and post-disturbance recovery.
The event will take place on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Ford Room of the Roseburg Public Library.
