Wilderness and fire: lessons learned from wilderness fire and challenges for the next 50 years of wilderness

Date: November 21, 2013
Presenter(s): Dave Campbell

The presentation shows examples and fire history from the 40+ years of Wilderness fire management in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness as well as the Frank Church – River of no Return Wilderness focusing on what has been learned and challenges that lay ahead. Climate change as well as public engagement and education are challenges to be faced in managing fire in Wilderness. Wilderness fire offers an opportunity for research as well as a need to better tell the ecological story to a wider audience. The 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act in 2014 is an opportunity to engage people in these challenges.
