OLYMPIA – The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR), WSU Extension, and other partners are hosting a free workshop for all forest landowners in the affected areas of Taylor Bridge and Table Mountain wildfires. Without active management after a wildfire, it could take decades to reestablish desired vegetation, if at all.

 When:October 13, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
 Where:   Unionville Ranch, 1750 Emerick Road, Cle Elum, WA

 Why:

An afternoon discussion will include a short walk where participants will learn how to assess fire severity and vegetation impacts. Participants should bring a lunch, appropriate clothing, and comfortable walking shoes. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information about the topics that will be included, view the ‘After the Burn Workshop’ brochure.
