Fire on the Mountain, Episode 1: The Event
Moderated by Tom McNamara, Arizona Public Media

The Bighorn Fire has covered over 120,000 acres of the Catalina Mountains, changing the landscape for decades to come. We will explore its genesis and behavior, and how a 1,000-person fire team responded to the blaze in a way that resulted in zero structures or human lives lost. Local researchers, fire professionals, ecologists, meteorologists, and geologists will help us understand the fire within the context of invasive species; previous burns and fire cycles of the Catalinas; and the weather conditions that fueled the fire, particularly through the lens of climate change. Collectively this session will allow us to see the fire in a new way and begin to comprehend the changes afoot.
