In a joint effort, the Watershed Council, the University of California Cooperative Extension and the US Forest Service present this day discussing the various lessons learned in the wake of the San Gabriel Mountains Station and Morris Fires of 2009, including those pertaining to ecology, conservation, and recovery both during and following such a catastrophic event. Speakers will address ways in which we can protect the natural diversity of the Angeles Forest while still allowing its continued use for recreation. Topics covered will include fire frequency, habitat, biodiversity loss and ecological restoration best practices among others.
Lunch will be served. Please visit the website for additional information and to make reservations.
