Fire Forest Poudre River

LOOKING Closer

Severe forest fires often leave steep slopes vulnerable to erosion. During storms, runoff sediment may render water untreatable for drinking and even suffocate fish. To prevent this, forest restoration is needed to undo a century of fire suppression, which made forests prone to megafires. This timelapse shows a slope of mixed conifer forest in Roosevelt National Forest above the Cache la Poudre River in Larimer County, Colorado. It is part of Fireforest, a multimedia project that is explaining the need for forest restoration in Colorado. This timelapse is in partnership with Evan Barrientos.
