More events at New Mexico Museum of Art

Dr. Alexander Evans uses images and maps as a backdrop for a discussion of why we need forest fires and how we can build fire-adapted communities.

In honor of National Wildfire Preparedness weekend, the museum extends a special welcome to firefighters and their families on Sunday, May 3! Come see the new exhibition Fire Season, enjoy visiting the museum, and join us for a free lecture in the St. Francis Auditorium at 2:00 p.m.

Fires are a natural part of New Mexico’s forests, but in recent years unnaturally severe and dangerous fires have damaged ecological and human communities. Dr. Alexander Evans, Research Director at the Forest Guild, will use images and maps as backdrop for a discussion of why we need forest fires and how we can build fire adapted communities.

In addition to his work with the Forest Guild, Dr. Evans also serves on the executive board of the Southwest Fire Science Consortium and the USDA’s Forestry Research Advisory Council.
