Upcoming Coalition Events
Our first 2018 seminar was last night at REI. Sandra Imler-Jacquez, USFS, and Alan Barton, New Mexico Forest & Watershed Restoration Institute, presented on Demystifying NEPA. We had an engaging conversation afterwards with many great questions from the public.
Come visit the Coalition at the next seminar on April 18th at 6pm at REI on smoke impacts. Josh Hall the Air & Water Quality Specialist for the US Forest Service will present on the difference between wildfire and prescribed fire smoke and their impacts, and Sam Berry from the Forest Stewards Guild will present an opportunity to rent a HEPA filter for free for people with smoke sensitivity.
