Event Description

May is all about Wildfire Awareness! Join us and the Metro Phoenix EcoFlora for this talk with Dr. Molly Hunter to learn about the changing role of fire in southwestern habitats. We live in such a unique place, and as fire become a more common facet of our lives it’s important we understand their role and their impact on our deserts.

She serves as the primary science advisor for the Joint Fire Science Program with the U.S. Forest Service and Department of Interior that funds scientific studies to inform wildland fire management.
