On the heels of a record setting wildfire season in California, forecasters are predicting a record setting season this year in Oregon.  The state is already facing drought conditions, and their wildfire season is expected to begin around June 1st.  Currently at Crater Lake National Park in southern Oregon, there are 99 inches of snow.  While that may sound like a lot, they average around 43 FEET a year!

We have several newer materials in the library about wildfires.  Firestorm: How Wildfires Will Shape Our Future by Edward Struzik and Megafire: The Race to Extinguish a Deadly Epidemic of Flame by Michael Kodas are two of them.  Megafire is also available as an eb00k if you rather read it on a device.

As always, if you have an questions, please Ask a Librarian for help.
