San Juan County Fire District 4, San Juan Islands National Monument, LCLT, Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce, San Juan County Land Bank & the Lopez Island Library are co-sponsoring a critical program we encourage the community to attend. This program is presented by the Wildfire Project a community effort to educate people and hopefully shift societal views regarding wildfires. The current state of wildfires throughout the West is catastrophic and the Wildfire Project’s objective is to encourage a better conversation about solutions through educaiton, community action & policy change. The program is a 60-minute, multimedia traveling presentation hosted by Dr. Paul Hessburg who has 27 years of experience conducting fire & landscape ecology research around the Pacific Northwest. Following the program there will be a Q&A with Fire Chief Jim Ghiglione & BLM Fire Management Officer Richard Parrish.
