Forest Service to Show Bark Beetle Movie

forest-service-signMany National Forest users and visitors have questions about the bark beetle outbreak that has swept through local forests over the last decade. A unique video series, being offered by the U.S. Forest Service explores how forests have changed, and showcases stories from the people who are responding to, and living with, those changes. The videos take viewers to meet hunters, rock climbers, fire lookouts, city water managers, foresters, volunteers, and many other diverse characters who are dealing with effects of bark beetles. The showing will last about an hour and a half. Local Forest Service staff and some of those involved in the making of the series will be on hand to answer questions about the project. There will be a free public showing tonight at 7 at the Chief Theater in Steamboat.
