- Instructor Dr. Arielle Halpren
Join KS Wild and Dr. Arielle Halpern to talk about the role of fire in our ecoregion. Explore the inner and outer workings of fire impacts to the landscape in an era of climate change. Dr. Halpern completed her dissertation on prescribed fire and tanoak-associated cultural plant resources of the Karuk and Yurok peoples of California, and is creating innovative new fire and forestry programs with broad community involvement. She believes tribes, as sovereign entities with intellectual property rights, hold a wealth of traditional ecological knowledge born of generations tending these landscapes. Dr. Halpren values understanding and interacting with people who may or may not always agree, while staying true to core values.
