Starker Lecture Series - Burning Questions: Forest, Fires & People

Forestry Events - 1 hour 36 min ago
Thursday, February 18, 2016 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Over the past several years, there has been an increase in the number and severity of wildfires in Oregon.  This trend is expected to continue as the Pacific Northwest become increasingly vulnerable to the effects of a changing climate including, decreased snowpack, higher temperatures and drought, and declining forest health.  These environmental changes increase the risk of catastrophic wildfire impacting communities living in the wildland-urban interface. Wildfire was once considered to be a risk only for people living in rural areas; however it is quickly becoming a reality for urban neighborhoods.  Recent fires in Corvallis and Portland illustrate the need for rural and urban communities alike to adapt to the changing conditions of their environment in which they live. The 2016 Starker Lecture will address the “new normal” of living with fire, and will offer individuals, neighborhoods, and communities useful information and strategies for living in a changing environment.

Forest Health in Oregon

Forest Health in Oregon: State of the State 2016 is a conference and continuing education event hosted at the LaSells Stewart Center on the campus of Oregon State University. The event is designed to synthesize the current forest health conditions of Oregon forests by focusing on mortality agents and other factors that negatively impact forests. The first day of the event will be an opportunity for participants to learn about the latest information regarding insects, disease, fire, vertebrates, and a changing climate-and how each of these are currently affecting Oregon’s forests. The second day will focus on management of these factors and discuss mitigation strategies moving forward.

Foresters, forest managers, environmentalists, resource professionals, woodland owners, students and anyone else with an interest in the health of Oregon’s forests would benefit from attending this event. The program is designed to give participants access to scientists during extended panel question periods. There will also be opportunities for participants to engage in discussion with forest health specialists and scientists on topics of interest in an informal setting.
