Last Sunday Lecture: Fire – A Native American Tool for Sculpting Canoes to Landscapes
September 24, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
On September 24, 2017, Dale Swedberg of the Washington Prescribed Fire Council will present Fire – A Native American Tool for Sculpting Canoes to Landscapes.
Native Washingtonian Dale Swedberg received his BS and MS in Wildlife Biology from WSU. As Manager of Sinlahekin Wildlife Area for 16 years, Dale came to the realization that he was responsible for managing fire dependent fish and wildlife habitat. He studied fire use by aboriginal peoples throughout the world and concluded that modern societies have become disassociated from the knowledge of fire dependent ecosystems.
Dale is a passionate advocate for restoring ecologically appropriate fire to resume its fundamental and integral part in creating and sustaining a healthy resilient ecosystem supporting a diversity of wildlife species.
The Last Sunday Lecture Series is presented free of charge by the Methow Valley Interpretive Center but donations are graciously accepted.
The MVIC is located in Building #2 on the TwispWorks campus.
