Mount Shepard Fire - Reflections On Wildfire In The A-B Wilderness 2022 Aug 4, 2022

Description: Will there be another wildfire in the East Rosebud drainage? Join us to find out.

Take a walk along this Wild and Scenic Creek with a recently retired fire manager to discuss the risks and rewards of fire in wilderness. Visit events surrounding the 1996 fire, lessons learned, and how humans can adapt to living in fire-prone environments.

Presenter: Dan Warthin's fire career began in 1991 when he joined the National Park Service (NPS) Alpine Interagency Hotshot Crew stationed at Zion National Park. Thereafter he worked on the Yellowstone fire use module before becoming a fire management officer (FMO) at Denali National Park & Preserve. He also served as the regional FMO for Alaska's national parks. Dan retired as the NPS Intermountain Region operations specialist.

Hike Information: The distance we travel on this hike will depend on our group, but plan to hike between 2-5 miles

Meeting Time and Location: 9AM at East Rosebud Trailhead
