Experience a powerful display of intense, real-time fire imagery along with facts, time lines and stories from first responders to friends and neighbors along the Columbia River.
These experiences bring opportunities to apply the lessons learned to possible future wildfires in our region.
Explore the causes and drivers of wildfire in the Pacific Northwest and contemplate land management considerations. Fire season is becoming more and more a reality in our everyday lives. The ramifications from the Eagle Creek fire and others in our area continue to have emotional to economic impact on us. This exhibit is a snapshot captured in time to help us understand the mechanisms for wildfires and a way to share ideas and solutions as future fire seasons approach.
