A Walk in the Woods: Exploring the Ponderosa Pine Forest

Saturday, September 28, 2019

This event is part of the 2019 Flagstaff Festival of Science. Did you know that in some ponderosa pine forests, ponderosa pine trees make up less than 1% of the total plant species diversity? To learn more about the plants in the forest that contribute to biodiversity, join the Ecological Restoration Institute for a walk in the woods at Fort Tuthill County Park. We will be walking through a restored area that is still recovering from a thinning treatment in 2017, but already showing signs of grass and forb responses. In addition to learning about important plants in our forests, we will talk about the need to prevent severe wildfires and restore ecological processes in Northern Arizona. Meet at the forest resiliency interpretive sign north of the Fort Tuthill Bike Park, next to the NAU Ecological Restoration Institute's demonstration area.
