TNC Lecture Series: The Role Of Forest Management in An Era Of Climate Change

Arthur Bell Auditorium


As the earth continues to warm and populations continue to move into our forests, we need to determine how we will live in and with forests. In much of the West, including New Mexico, living with forests means living with fire. There is ample evidence from research across North America that active forest management creates a viable future for both nature and communities that depend on forested watersheds. Still, challenges remain when foresters aim to keep pace with the increasing scale of disturbances. Join us for an evening lecture from Dr. Jens Stevens from the US Geological Survey New Mexico Landscape Field Station. Dr. Stevens will discuss options on how strategic forest management influences fire behavior and ecosystems, and can create a resilient future for forests and people. The lecture is hosted by The Nature Conservancy and the Rio Grande Water Fund with support from the Taos Ski Valley Foundation.

We will begin at 5:30 and will have plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Free to the public. Seating is limited, doors open at 5:00pm
