The 2016 lightning-caused Berry Fire was the largest fire on record for Grand Teton National Park. This video, by videographer Peri Sasnett, highlights the challenges managers face in balancing ecological benefits of fire with the human inconvenience fire can cause on public lands and in nearby communities. Dramatic footage of the fire burning contrasts with lodgepole seedlings sprouting and wildlife foraging in the burned area one year later. Viewers will hear commentary from park staff and scientists about how the Berry Fire was managed, and what made this fire so unusual.
