Wildness Series: Fire on the Landscape in and around Custer County
June 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
On Saturday, June 23, there will be a wildfire panel presentation with local Custer County officials and agency representatives from the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management. The presentation is an opportunity to have a common dialogue about fire on the landscape and the strategic use of fire on the landscape in Custer County and nearby areas. Public participation is extremely important in order to share values and concerns.
Dennis Page, Fire Management Officer for the USDA Forest Service San Carlos Ranger District, Pike-San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron/Comanche National Grasslands, will provide insight and information on current fire issues and the role of fire in modern wildland management. Dennis and other federal land agency representatives will be joined by local Custer County officials, including County Commissioner Tom Flower, Custer County Sheriff Shannon Byerly, and Custer County Office of Emergency Management Director Cindy Howard.
The event will be held from 6:00 until 7:30 pm at the Cliff Lanes Banquet Hall, 25 Main Street in Westcliffe. The program is free. For more information, please call GARNA at 719-539-5106.
