CEDAR MOUNTAIN DISCOVERY – 2017 POST FIRE RECOVERY
The September field trip will take us to the high mountains and forested areas near Brain Head and Panguitch Lake, Utah. In June of 2017, approximately 111 square miles of area were consumed by a wildfire which impacted large areas of Iron and Garfield counties. The aftermath of this wildfire still affects the nearby communities of Brian Head, Panguitch Lake and Parowan even though the immediate threat has subsided. We will visit and view rehabilitation areas and get a first hand look at the efforts that have been realized after a summer of regrowth.
