Share this event:

Forests are the water towers of the west. When you think about what comes out of your faucet, look to the nearest mountain ridgeline. For those of us in the greater-Albuquerque and East Mountain area, that ridgeline is the Sandia Mountains. This lecture is part of an educational series called "Science in the Sandias" funded by a U.S. Forest Service Collaborative Forest Restoration Program grant. The research-based series is intended to connect the natural role of fire in local ecosystems, wildfire hazard mitigation, and watershed health. The Museum is an education partner on this grant.

Dr. Craig D. Allen is a research ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, Fort Collins Science Center, field-based at Bandelier National Monument where he leads the Jemez Mountains Field Station.  He is an expert on forest changes resulting from climate change and drought.. He has authored more than 100 publications on landscape ecology and landscape change; and has appeared in science documentaries ranging from NOVA and the Discovery Channel to Australian public television.   Allen conducted landscape change studies in the Jemez Mountains for his M.S. in biogeography (University of WisconsinMadison) and Ph.D. in forest ecology, landscape ecology, and conservation biology (University of CaliforniaBerkeley). He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Laura McCarthy is Director of Conservation Programs at the Nature Conservancy in New Mexico. She is a forester and conservation practitioner with expertise in practical and policy strategies for large-scale restoration of fire adapted forests. She played a lead role in developing the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program, securing the bill's passage by the U.S. Congress, and leading a broad coalition to advocate for full funding of the program. Laura is working with innovative tools such as "water funds," that create public-private partnerships between water users and providers. She earned a Master of Forestry degree (Yale University).
