“Wilderness and … Yellowstone Ablaze – The Great Fires of 1988” will be presented Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Emerson Center’s Weaver room in Bozeman. Bob Barbee, Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park in 1988, will be the featured speaker at this program sponsored by the Madison-Gallatin Chapter of the Montana Wilderness Association.
Nearly 25 years ago, historic 1988 Yellowstone fires redefined wildfire management on our public lands and advanced the concept that natural wildfire is an ecological process like sunshine or rain. Mr. Barbee, who was Yellowstone’s Superintendent that year, will describe his summer of media onslaught and scapegoating, balanced with genuine understanding and empathy.
“Wilderness and…” is a series of lectures designed for area newcomers, families, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone with a passion for wild places and protecting Montana’s wildlands. The program is free and open to the public.
