Post-Spring Fire Talk – Five Years Later
Join La Veta Trails at La Veta Mercantile, 300 S Main Street, La Veta, for a Post-Spring Fire Talk – Five Years Later. Manuel Molles, Derek Sokoloski, and Mary Anne Nelson will present an update on ecosystem recovery five years after the Spring Fire. This talk is a follow up to their discussions in 2018 and 2019 and will focus on ecosystem recovery across the Spring Fre burn scar along gradients of fire severity, including soil properties and regrowth and survival of herbaceous plants, shrubs, and trees. Fire mitigation, flooding, erosion, and altered hydrology will also be discussed. Manuel is a Professor Emeritus at the University of New Mexico, Derek is the Southeast Area Manager of the Colorado State Forest Service, and Mary Anne is a Porfessor Emerita at the University of New Mexico.
