On June 23, from 9:00am to 3:00pm we will tour important burn areas with resources specialists, community members and land managers. We will meet in the South Fork Visitor Center, organize into vans, and drive through the burn area stopping to talk about the effects of the fire, how the burn area is recovering, and how communities are adapting. Lunch will be provided by the San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership and Firewise of Southwest Colorado. Wear appropriate shoes, bring water, and be prepared for weather.

This event is hosted by the San Juan and Rio Grande National Forests, Firewise of Southwest Colorado, the Southern Rockies Fire Science Network, San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership, Colorado State Forest Service, Mountain Studies Institute, and Wolf Creek Ski Area.
