March 15: What are we protecting? Values at risk in the Santa Fe Watershed

The Forest Stewards Guild with help from partners, and funding from the New Mexico Association of Counties, brings  you a FREE Spring Seminar Series that is designed to lead you through an interactive, participatory learning experience about the Greater Santa Fe Fireshed.

Every other Wednesday March 15th - April 26th there will be an evening seminar held from 5:30 - 7 at REI in Santa Fe that focuses on topics affecting our fireshed.  Speakers will address issues such as, the impacts a wildfire would have on economy, culture and tourism; what does it mean to restore a forest; the role of fire in the forest ecosystem; smoke management; programs available that will help you reduce your risk from wildfire, and much more. There will be time for discussion, questions and community announcements after each seminar. Participants are invited to continue their conversations at Second Street Brewing at the Railyard following each seminar.  Participants are encouraged to attend as many of the four seminars as they can. Each seminar will address a new topic and may integrate discussions or ideas from the previous topic.

March 29: Forest restoration: What does it mean and why do we need it?
April 12: What do you mean "controlled burn"? Fire as a restoration tool & smoke management
April 26: What cen I do to reduce my risk? Actions you can take
