12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Pacific time
Presenters: Libby Pansing and Brian Morris, American Forests
Since 2018, approximately 660,000 acres have seen wildfire within Klamath and Lake Counties, two thirds of which burned at high severity. An additional 45,000 acres of reforestation backlog exists on the Fremont-Winema National Forest from fires prior to 2018. Fortunately, this region has a long history of successful shared stewardship, resulting in increased funding and treatment scale across federal and private lands. With their unique combination of partnership experience and restoration expertise, the people of Klamath and Lake Counties are positioned to grow a national model for post-wildfire recovery. This strategy will continue landscape-scale, cross-jurisdictional collaboration to recover from wildfires of unprecedented severity and ensure long-term forest persistence, future forest and ecosystem health, and regional economic stability.
