Feeling the heat? Join us on September 14th at 6:30 PM as we discuss Land on Fire: The New Reality of Wildfire in the West by Gary Ferguson. This event is in partnership with the Invermere Public library.
Wildfire season is burning longer and hotter, affecting more and more people, especially in the west. Land on Fire explores the fascinating science behind this phenomenon and the ongoing research to find a solution. This gripping narrative details how years of fire suppression and chronic drought have combined to make the situation so dire. Award-winning nature writer Gary Ferguson brings to life the extraordinary efforts of those responsible for fighting wildfires, and deftly explains how nature reacts in the aftermath of flames.
