Lauren Stachowiak, an assistant professor of Geosciences at EWU, is an expert on wildfire activity and how climate change has impacted fire behavior.  Appearing on “Experts @ EWU” on Spokane Talks, she points out how recent fires in the region are prime example of Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) and how we all need to be ‘fire-wise.’  And she says, you’d be surprised what the trees are telling us.
