Voyageurs National Park Presents Fire and Ecosystem Management
Contact: Tawnya Schoewe, 218-283-6670
Forest fires can be destructive, frightening events, but can also be rejuvenating to aging forests. Join Fire Management Specialist Scott Bressler to learn how fire is used to help enrich the health of forest ecosystems, and how park staff decides to manage fires.
Meet at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center on Sunday, February 19, 2012. The program runs from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
This program is sponsored by Voyageurs National Park Association. No fee or registration is required to attend.

Voyageurs National Park experienced a large, lightning-ignited fire on the Kabetogama Peninsula in 2004. This young eagle survived the fire and returned to its former nesting tree in time for park researchers to take this photo!
