The Southern Rockies Fire Science Network has posted a four-part video series that explores the challenges and triumphs involved with the 2013 West Fork Fire Complex in southern Colorado. This 109,000-acre fire had unique impacts on the Rio Grande river watershed, two national forests, and related mountain communities. Each short is a compilation of post-fire interviews, workshops, and research presentations, highlighting the special conditions of the fire and the unique community outcomes. Through science, collaboration and partnerships these mountain communities are learning to live with fire in the landscape.
The CCC’s own Ch’aska Huayhuaca assisted in the making of this series.
