Fire ecology is the study of the interaction between ecosystems and the wildfires that occur naturally within them. Wildfires are common in various ecosystems and can be necessary for plant developmental processes. Fire ecology also studies the effect of anthropogenic change and management on the incidence and effects of wildfires.

Did you know that there is an Association of Fire Ecology, a scientific journal dedicated to Fire Ecology, and that you can get degrees and/or certifications in fire sciences?

Register for tonight's presentation to learn more about this fascinating topic! We'll be hearing from Dr. Tony Cheng, professor, Department of Forest & Rangeland Stewardship at Colorado State University, and Director of the Colorado Forest Restoration Institute.

We have the video of the CSU Extension, Jefferson County Wildfire Wednesday presentation on Defensible Space and Home Hardening by Daniel Beveridge of Colorado State Forest Service! Please send this to anyone you know who is looking for some simple ways to make your home more fire resistant. It can be as easy as installing metal flashing around the bottom of wood deck posts, cleaning out your gutters and roof tops of pine needles and leaves, putting rock instead of wood mulch up against your home, and so many more tips and tricks.
