Era of Megafires Presentation Coming to Bozeman

Bozeman, MT – Dr. Paul Hessburg will be presenting his Era of Megafires presentation in Bozeman on April 7th, 2017.  His multimedia presentation is open to everyone, at no cost, to come learn about the factors influencing wildfires in today’s world.  Hessburg will spend about an hour and a half speaking and showing illustrative multimedia segments about why we are seeing larger and larger wildfires in our communities derived from his decades of research at the Pacific Northwest Research Station in Washington.

“The Era of Megafires presentation is a new program that has received fantastic feedback from participants over the past year.  Dr. Hessburg and North 40 Productions did a great job creating a dynamic presentation that intermixes audience interaction with illustrative video segments,” according to Gallatin County Emergency Manager Patrick Lonergan.  Mr. Lonergan stated, “We are very excited for Gallatin County to be the first venue in Montana where Era of Megafires will be seen.”

This free event for the community is being made possible by our event sponsors:

  • Gallatin County
  • Montana State University Extension
  • Acela Truck Company
