LA’s New Abnormal: Mega-Wildfires Reception and Discussion

February 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Nature Conservancy and UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability (IoES) invite you to LA’s New Abnormal: Mega-Wildfires Reception and Discussion Seemingly every year, California breaks some record for devastation with a new wildfire. The Woolsey fire was the worst the Malibu area has ever seen, and it has been 100 years since there has been a wildfire anywhere in the US as deadly as Northern California’s Camp Fire. Is this new abnormal something we just have to learn to live with, or are there actions to be taken that could reduce wildfire hazard both immediately, and more profoundly over a 10 to 20-year span?
