BLM Hosts Brown Bag Lunch
Have you been hearing a lot about wildfire in the news recently? Are you worried that we are just as vulnerable in Wyoming as in the rest of the west? If you’re curious about wildfire, the Bureau of Land Management is sponsoring an hour-long discussion on the topic. Bring your lunch and join us for an hour on November 8, BLM buildling, 5353 Yellowstone, from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
BLM’s John Glenn, Glen Burkhart, and Kurt Kleiner will talk about fire in pre-settlement Wyoming, current BLM projects and responsibilities, fire in urban environments, hazardous fuels management, and the use of aviation in fire management. The presentation will last 40 minutes and allow additional time for questions.
Fire resistant clothing, tools, and other materials will be on display.
