Join us for Science Sunday this weekend! Sunday, February 17 at 2pm at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in Sumay. This month we feature Christine Fejeran, Cooperative Fire Program Manager, with Guam Dept. of Agriculture’s Forestry Division. Christine and her team want to hear from all of you – our island community! It’s all about Wildfire Preparedness and Community-driven Action. But wait, what does wildfire preparedness have to do with coral reefs? Wildfires that burn on our hills means that we have less trees and plants to absorb rainwater. And when it rains, a lot of that bare soil washes into our rivers and eventually out to our reefs.
Learn more about erosion impacts to Guam’s reefs and how our community can help here.
Guam Forestry and partners will discuss and share ideas with attendees to develop a strong and effective day of action for our various community groups from schools, civic groups, community centers, villages, to the greater island populace. The time for proactive change is now by taking responsibility for our risks and preventing catastrophic wildfires. Here’s your chance to ask questions.
