Tired of smoke and worried about wildfires? Our panel of experts provided insightful presentations and thoughtful discussion around the relationship between climate change, forests and wildfires, and the increasing impacts on forest ecosystems and human health. They also delved into the consequences of forest policy and solutions for the future, including what you can do to help!  King 5 News was there to cover it (see below).  A video of the presentation will be available soon, here, or on the Climate Science on Tap YouTube channel.  Check out the five CSonTap events there now.
