MSU Wonderlust Community Event: Montana’s Forest Fires: Why We Just Burn Our Forests

Oct 15


Montana State University Wonderlust, in partnership with the Belgrade Community Library, will host a presentation by Peter Kolb on “Montana’s Forest Fires: Why We Just Burn Our Forests.” This event is presented online via Zoom.
Kolb, forestry specialist at Montana State University Extension and an associate professor of forest ecology and management at the University of Montana, will discuss the unique ecology of forests in the Northern Rockies with specific reference to Montana forest ecosystems. The interaction of Montana mountain geography with Western U.S. weather patterns, and the history of both Indigenous cultures and European American settlers, makes them some of the most complex forest ecosystems in the world.
This presentation is free and open to the public, but participants must register in advance at
