This excursion was led by three Bark volunteers: Air Quality Scientist Matt Mathco, Ph.D. candidate in Fire Ecology Kyla Zarro, and watershed educator Amira El Sharbini.
One note from last week that I just remembered. I've begun to start thinking about carbon dating in relation to my interest in forest temporality. Awesomely enough, forest fire temporality was a focus brought into the discussion by Kyla Zarro.
My interest in fires stems from my interest in forest conservation. Logging makes fires worse. Logging makes climate change worse. Fires are worse because of climate change, and are also bad for the atmosphere if they are large and long in duration. These are things I want to talk about through charcoal inks and paints.
