Why are wildfires getting larger and more intense? How does a wildly destructive force like fire fit into biodiversity management? What is the difference between a crown fire and a cool fire? Join wildfire mitigation specialist Brendan Clifford as he leads a discussion that addresses these questions and gives a broad overview of fire history, the use of fire, and fire ecology in the Bay Area, Marin County, and at China Camp. 

In addition to a degree from University of Scranton,PA, Brendan is a graduate of the firefighter academy at Santa Rosa Junior College. He currently works as a wildfire mitigation inspector for the San Rafael Fire Department. Brendan also volunteers as a cultural history and naturalist docent for Friends of China Camp.
