Dispatches from the Field: The Berry Fire
Watch a video that explores the largest fire in Grand Teton National Park history. The Berry Fire burned over 20,000 acres in 2016, and it closed the park highway for several days. But as scientists reenter the burned area a year later, they find a rejuvenated forest. The video examines why fire is necessary for a healthy forest, as well as the challenges and rewards of managing fire in a highly visited national park.
It's one episode in a series of short videos about park science, called "Dispatches from the Field." Watch the rest of the series on the park's YouTube channel.
