Wildfires have seemed inescapable with larger, more extreme and devastating fires burning every year. But what does fire mean for plants and animals, especially in a hotspot of biological diversity like San Diego?


This topic has perhaps never been so poignant than in the smoke-filled haze of 2020 where we’ve seen an unprecedented amount of land burned, homes destroyed, and people lost in California and across the west. From the human perspective, wildfires are described as devastating and catastrophic. But what does fire mean for plants and animals, especially in a hotspot of biological diversity like San Diego? And how do we balance the needs of protecting life and property in our local communities with conservation of our region’s diverse flora and fauna?


Dr. Megan Jennings from San Diego State University will explore the unique role of wildfire, fire regime, and fire impacts on biodiversity in two different ecosystems: San Diego’s extensive shrublands and our coniferous forests. Megan will weave a tale of wildfire and wildlife that spans her experiences as federal land manager to conservation ecologist and highlights the importance of balanced and strategic planning for wildfire risk and conservation of biodiversity in these two different ecosystems.


Note: you do not need to purchase tickets and do not need a Zoom account to attend the talk. You can choose to support The Nat by selecting the $12 suggested ticket price at checkout.
