This intimate discussion with Professor Lisa Dale and the Tricentennial Project will dive into wildfire management in the American West as it pertains to sustainable adaptations and changes in the physical environment. We will cover practices such as prescribed burning among other ways in which these public lands are managed in an attempt to mitigate fire risks, questioning how we might look forward into the future and generate new solutions to protect the ecosystems and the people affected.
Lisa Dale, Lecturer in the Discipline of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology at Columbia University
