"Megafires" are increasingly damaging to people and their assets. "Active management" of forests has been proposed as a cannot miss solution with highly desired fringe benefits. But, what is "active management"? Can it live up to the hype? This Talk will explore these questions.
Join us for a series of informative talks at different local venues, this one in Mount Shasta, CA. Richard Fairbanks, local fire expert, will present a historical approach about Southern Oregon’s relationship with wildfire and how to use it as a tool to protect homes and communities while maintaining forest health and resiliency.
Join Dennis Odion and KS Wild for this informative hike. Dennis Odion, Ph.D, is an ecologist interested in vegetation pattern and process. He has studied fire behavior and effects via field experiments and geographical methods and previously monitored fires as a vegetation manager and field technician in northern California.
Join KS Wild staff Allee Gustafson on a leisurely stroll along some of the region’s rivers and creeks looking for spawning salmon.
Since little attention is usually paid to the carbon balance of our forests and the role of forests in sequestering and storing carbon, we will explore what the evidence tells us about carbon storage in our forests and how effective they can be at mitigating climate change by storing carbon versus how destructive they can be if the carbon flux is ignored.
Our local mushrooms have many uses from gormet edibles to natural fabric dyes to essential food for wildlife. Join us on a tour of the world of the fungal kingdom and learn about this elusive but essential component of our biodiversity.
Join KS Wild Staff Ecologist for an easy walk to learn about the salmon lifecycle and view wild salmon spawning in the beautiful Illinois River.
Have you ever seen an eagle chasing an osprey, until the osprey drops a fish it's carrying in its talons and the eagle, swooping in below, catches it in mid-air? Or watched as a dull brown bug crawled out of a river onto a rock, split open, and have a fully formed dragonfly emerge from it, dry off, and fly away? These are some of the amazing experiences our guests have had on our raft supported hikes along the Wild and Scenic Rogue River.
