  • Webinars on the Bighorn Fire, Aug 12 (Part 2) and 19 (Part 3), 2020 - Tucsonans watched as a major fire swept across the Santa Catalina Mountains. We all have questions regarding what transpired and what the future holds. Why did this fire get so large? What was the role of climate change and drought? How was wildlife impacted, especially desert bighorn sheep? What role did invasive species have in the extent of the fire at lower elevations? This three-part public webinar series by the Arizona Institutes for Resilience brings the expertise of our community to address these questions and more through live interactions to help us better understand the fire on the mountain. Register here.  A recording of the August 5 (Part 1) webinar can be viewed here.
