An oasis of land that the fire spared along Wahclella Falls Trail

The Eagle Creek Fire resulted in a patchwork of severely burned, moderately burned, and lightly or unburned areas called a burn “mosaic.” This mosaic is actually good for the forest because the green areas aid in the process of reseeding and regenerating, while the more severely burned areas provide open spaces that offer habitat for different types of species.

 

In the coming years, the slopes of the Gorge will provide opportunities to discover and chronicle the regeneration process.
