Seeking consensus in post fire management: The Canyon Creek example
Our partners at the Northwest Fire Science Consortium, which works to accelerate the awareness, understanding, and adoption of wildland fire science, recently prepared this video about the Canyon Creek wildfire that burned on the Malheur National Forest in 2015. The video discusses the wildfire, the effect on local communities, and the aftermath of the fire, including the restoration activities proposed for the Canyon Creek watershed. As the video explains, the Blue Mountains Forest Partners is working with the Forest Service to develop a science-based research proposal that will investigate the best way to balance local economic needs from post-fire logging, with wildlife and aquatic needs post-fire.
