Description

The Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) has partnered with UAF's Bonanza Creek Long Term Ecological Research Station to foster the growing network of visual artists, writers, and scientists dedicated to integrating scientific and artistic perspectives on climate change in interior Alaska. This network, known as In a Time of Change, has been working together since 2007 to explore and develop new perspectives on the connections between humans and Alaska's changing ecosystem. This year's theme will focus on The Art of Fire. The goal is to engage professional artists with the members of the fire management community and scientists to promote public under-standing and awareness of the science behind management practices in the context of a changing climate. In addition, there is a wealth of creative talent within the fire community that are interested in communicating what they observe and experience on the job. This project was presented at the 2011 Alaska Fire Science Workshop in Fairbanks, Alaska on October 6, 2011.
