      Two Years After Fire and Flood: A Community Conversation About the Impacts of the Thomas Fire and January 9 Debris Flow

      Two years since the catastrophic incidents in Santa Barbara County, their effects continue to be felt. In addition to the terrible direct impacts of these events on our community, ash from the fire and mud relocated to beaches also affected the health of the Santa Barbara coast and channel.

      Join us at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History to hear about the latest ongoing research assessing the extent of these impacts, and what it might tell us about how to improve our response to future disasters. A series of flash talks by experts in the biological and social sciences will be followed by a moderated panel discussion and Q&A with experts and local policymakers.
