Collier-Houk team produce radio series on Four Forest Restoration Initiative

Arizona ponderosa pine forest

The ponderosa forests of northern Arizona are at risk, caught at the convergence of a century of fire prevention, encroachment by urban and rural properties, and a changing climate.  The Grand Canyon Trust and many other organizations have been actively forging a solution that would restore forest health, prevent catastrophic fires, and offer economic opportunity.  Michael Collier and Rose Houk prepared a four-part radio series about the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI) that aired on Flagstaff’s NPR station KNAU in November 2012.

Part 1 defines past history and problems within the forest: http://www.knau.org/post/4fri-part-1-problem-our-ponderosa-forests

Part 2 traces the history of 4FRI: http://www.knau.org/post/4fri-part-2-birth-collaboration>

Part 3 discusses the unlikely 4FRI partners: http://www.knau.org/post/4fri-part-3-collaboration-unlikely-partners

Part 4 describes what restoration will look like: http://www.knau.org/post/4fri-part-4-what-restoration-will-look-and-smell

A big “thanks” to Michael Collier and Rose Houk for their work informing the public on this important issue.
