Fire Ecology of California

Join the EV in a fun, interactive learning experience which will teach you about what fires mean for nature in California.


Saturday, September 18th 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm


Fires are an important fact of life in California. Humans have developed ways to deal with the fire season, but what about plants and animals? In what ways are they adapted to California’s fires?


Join us in this interactive exploration of fire ecology. Learn how plants and animals deal with fire, and discover some amazing facts you might not have known about how fire works in nature! All ages are welcome – activities will be accessible and enjoyable for kids and adults alike.
