Our Family Farms, Coalición Fortaleza, and the University of Idaho Confluence Lab brought together local nonprofits, volunteers, and community leaders involved in the Almeda Fire recovery on November 18 for “Mapping Fire Recovery in the Rogue Valley”.

The University of Idaho Confluence Lab studies climate change and wildfires in the Pacific Northwest and chose to come to Jackson County to help local organizations understand how they can work together in fire recovery. They presented a creative, interactive workshop to to share knowledge and connect with one another to discuss the collective work towards rebuilding. Attendees of the meeting recounted their experiences surrounding the Almeda Fire and used their experiences to bond and form a map of how they can help each other moving forward for the long-term resilience of the community.
