Lessons From The Rim Fire

Sponsored by:

This weekend’s Mother Lode Views focuses on the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, which was created by the state of California over a decade ago and delves into several critical issues in the Sierra Nevada region.

The guest will be the conservancy Executive Officer Jim Branham. This month the conservancy held its meeting in Sonora and went on a tour of the Rim Fire burn scar. The topics to be addressed will include observations from that viewing, his definition of a “healthy forest” and what can be learned from devastating wildfires like the Butte and Rim fires.
