Playing with Wildfire - Fire Ecology and Suppression
Hosted by Yampatika
Join us for a hike with a Yampatika naturist who worked first hand as a Wildland firefighter for the US Forest Service in Northern California. Many already know fire is natural, but what has happened to make wildland fire become regular headline news? Learn about the fascinating history of fire suppression, the current world of containing fires and what can be done to restore a more natural role of fire to our ecosystems.

What to wear: Dress for the weather (current and future) and dress in layers! Many people like to wear long pants/sleeves to protect yourself from the sun, dirt, and things that might make you itchy (mosquitos, etc.). Avoid cotton when you’re able and go with a synthetic material or wool. Also remember to wear sturdy hiking shoes, good socks, a cool sun hat, and sunscreen!
What to bring in your day pack: 2 Water bottles, snacks, sunscreen, extra layers (long sleeve shirt, fleece) and also bring your waterproof jacket- weather changes quickly, make sure to come for cooler/wet weather
