Fire it up! (overnight)

Fire is one of the most fascinating and powerful forces on planet Earth. It is at once a life-giving source of warmth, a subtle sculpting tool, a delightful scientific puzzle, a key component of ecosystem balance, and a source of great destruction. In this class we will crack open the mysteries of how fire works, how to use it safely and respectfully, and how wildfire both supports and threatens our mountain ecosystems. Join us for the week and let your curiosity burn!

Overnight details:
