USFS, institute to premiere bark beetle video series
The U.S. Forest Service and the University of Wyoming Ruckelshaus Institute will host a premiere screening of their video series, "Our Future Forests: Beyond Bark Beetles," on Tuesday in Laramie, Wyo.
The event will be held on the UW campus at the Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center, starting at 5:30 p.m., and admission will be free.
"Our Future Forests: Beyond Bark Beetles" is a series of 10 short videos exploring effects of and responses to the recent mountain pine beetle outbreak in local forests. The films, all of which take place in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests, highlight impacted user groups and areas as well as share actions the U.S. Forest Service and others are taking to respond to the outbreak, according to a news release.
The videos take viewers to meet hunters, rock climbers, fire lookouts, city water managers, foresters, volunteers and others who are dealing with effects of bark beetles.
Acclaimed videographer Morgan Heim shot and produced the videos.
The showing will last about 1 1/2 hours, and the people involved in the making of the series will be on hand to talk about the project.
The project is a partnership between the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and the University of Wyoming Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources.
An additional public showing of the videos is being planned for late May in Steamboat Springs. Ultimately, the 10 videos will be housed on a soon-to-be-announced website and will be available for public viewing and sharing from that location.
