Why is Sagebrush Country on Fire?

June 03, 2020, CO

Registration is required for this free webinar.

Invasive annual grasses are quickly expanding across the West, dramatically changing sagebrush country. Today we are experiencing more frequent and hotter wildfires that are harmful to communities, western lands, and wildlife.

On behalf of the SageWest Communications Network, you are invited to join us in this presentation by Michele Crist, a leading landscape ecologist with the National Interagency Fire Center. In this free webinar, she will discuss the wildfire trends, identify the culprits, the impacts, and break down the challenges/opportunities. A Q&A will follow.
