May 4th Ales and Ideas: Aaron Groth Presents Living with Fire in Clatsop County: past, present, and future

Join Clatsop Community College and Fort George Brewery for May’s Ales & Ideas Lecture on Thursday, May 4th, 2023, at 7 p.m. featuring Aaron Groth from the OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Fire Program, who will be presenting Living with Fire in Clatsop County: past, present, and future.

Although many Clatsop County residents and visitors believe wildfire is not a risk on the Coast, fire has always played a role here. By examining the history of fire in the Coast Range, and also current trends, we can have a better understanding of what the future of fire may look like in our area.   Indigenous people used fire as a land management tool for millennia, as seen in the presence of the open habitats of the Clatsop Plains and other prairies and headland grasslands of the Coast, now in decline.  Stand-replacing crown fires, such as the Tillamook and Wolf Creek Fires, have a long and well documented history.  These are a hazard for all our communities and residents. Our larger coastal population, along with changes to land use and our climate are increasing the risk and impacts of future fires in the region.  With this background, we will discuss how individuals and communities can prepare for wildfire.

Aaron is the Coastal Oregon regional fire specialist in the OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Fire Program.  Aaron works with communities as well as local, state, federal, private, and nonprofit partners at different scales across the Coast to provide education and foster fire resilient communities and landscapes.  He has worked for city, state, and federal agencies, international cooperation, nonprofits, and served as an Environmental Peace Corps Volunteer in Peru. 

Fort George lectures are in-person events in the Lovell Showroom. Doors open at 6 p.m., with food, ales, and other beverages available, no purchase necessary. Minors are welcome at this FREE event.
