As deadly wildfires globally increase in number and severity, residents of fire-prone areas are finding themselves on the frontline of these historic and potential climate-changing events. This exhibition of over 50 images and a documentary film from recent California fire seasons, come together in this body of work from nine critically-acclaimed photojournalists and explores the ramifications these fires can have and reveal the pain, suffering and all-encompassing loss the victims endure.

FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

Photographer Justin Sullivan is seen here seeking a low angle while covering the Camp Fire of 2018. “Being with a group that is well trained and understands how to navigate these dangerous fires is so important to me,” Sullivan says. “Being in a car with someone when you’re driving down roads that have fire on both sides with trees and power lines falling all around is so much better than trying to navigate it on your own.” Photo by Noah Berger.

 

Freelance photographer Noah Berger has spent 24 years covering the San Francisco Bay Area for editorial, corporate and government clients. He works for national and international news outlets including the Associated Press, Reuters, San Francisco Chronicle and LA Times. On the corporate side, Noah covers transportation and infrastructure for government agencies and works often with health care organizations. A native of New York, Noah lives in Alameda – an island across the bay from San Francisco – with his wife and 9-year-old son.

Freelance photographer Noah Berger has spent 24 years covering the San Francisco Bay Area for editorial, corporate and government clients. He works for national and international news outlets including the Associated Press, Reuters, San Francisco Chronicle and LA Times.

FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

Photographer Justin Sullivan is seen here seeking a low angle while covering the Camp Fire of 2018. “Being with a group that is well trained and understands how to navigate these dangerous fires is so important to me,” Sullivan says. “Being in a car with someone when you’re driving down roads that have fire on both sides with trees and power lines falling all around is so much better than trying to navigate it on your own.” Photo by Noah Berger.

 

Freelance photographer Noah Berger has spent 24 years covering the San Francisco Bay Area for editorial, corporate and government clients. He works for national and international news outlets including the Associated Press, Reuters, San Francisco Chronicle and LA Times. On the corporate side, Noah covers transportation and infrastructure for government agencies and works often with health care organizations. A native of New York, Noah lives in Alameda – an island across the bay from San Francisco – with his wife and 9-year-old son.

Big Bend National Park - Multi Day Adventure

Drive time: 20 h

Pre-trip meeting: Tuesday, November 19 @ 8:00 PM

Located in West Texas, Big Bend will allow you to enjoy dark night skies with beautiful starry views and rivers that carve awe-inspiring canyons in the limestone walls. You can expect sunny and 75 degree days, which will be a welcomed change from the chilly November days of Kentucky. You might just get lucky and spot some mule deer, coyotes, or foxes while in the park(from a safe distance of course).  On this multi-day adventure, you will get to float down the Rio Grande relaxing on a two to four-day river trip through Boquillas Canyon. The rapids in this 33-mile journey only rate up to Class II. Camping a couple of nights by the soothing sounds of the river, and marveling at the 1,200-foot canyon walls, allow time to forget the daily distractions of life. As you travel down the canyon, notice the remains of candelilla wax mining camps on the Mexican side of the river. After our time on the river, a sunrise hike to the Miners Trail is a must. Come enjoy the beautiful sights, and sounds of this marvelously park in Texas.

You can expect sunny and 75 degree days, which will be a welcomed change from the chilly November days of Kentucky. You might just get lucky and spot some mule deer, coyotes, or foxes while in the park(from a safe distance of course).  On this multi-day adventure, you will get to float down the Rio Grande relaxing on a two to four-day river trip through Boquillas Canyon. The rapids in this 33-mile journey only rate up to Class II. Camping a couple of nights by the soothing sounds of the river, and marveling at the 1,200-foot canyon walls, allow time to forget the daily distractions of life. As you travel down the canyon, notice the remains of candelilla wax mining camps on the Mexican side of the river. After our time on the river, a sunrise hike to the Miners Trail is a must. Come enjoy the beautiful sights, and sounds of this marvelously park in Texas.

UNESCO Karst 2020, Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: 

Abstract Submission Deadline, November 30, 2019

 

PROMOTING SUSTAINABILITY AND COMMUNITY

WHILE PROTECTING FRAGILE KARST ECOSYSTEMS.

 

The Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community, informally called UNESCO Karst 2020, aims to enhance communication and the sharing of ideas and resources between major international conservation and science programs that protect, study, or manage cave and karst resources. The meeting will bring together a diverse group of managers, scientists, educators, and community partners to share successes and challenges in promoting sustainability and community involvement while protecting fragile karst ecosystems.

 

The call for abstracts is open! Abstracts may be submitted until November 30, 2019 and authors will be notified of acceptance by January 1. In addition to traditional scientific presentations, we encourage participants to propose workshop sessions. Workshops are 1.5-hour blocks of time that you organize in order to achieve a specific outcome. These may include a panel discussion, collaborating on a strategic plan or research project, a business meeting, or simply a space to share ideas about a common challenge.  Find more information about organizing your workshop here.  The planning committee looks forward to your proposals!

 

UNESCO Karst 2020 will occur on 18-22 May 2020 in the world-class karst area of south-central Kentucky! The meeting will take place in the newly remodeled Downing Student Union on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, with mid-week field excursions to nearby Mammoth Cave National Park and Biosphere Reserve. A pre-meeting field excursion at Mammoth Cave National Park is also planned for 15-17 May, 2020, in cooperation with the USGS Karst Interest Group.

 

For all of the details on the meeting, including information on how to prepare and submit your abstracts, visit http://www.unescokarst2020.com/. .

 

UNESCO Karst 2020 is managed by the Crawford Hydrology Laboratory at Western Kentucky University, the George Wright Society, and the Mammoth Cave Area Biosphere Reserve as well as an outstanding team of karst experts from around the world who join us to form the Advisory Committee. On behalf of the UNESCO Karst 2020 team, we look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you in Kentucky next year!
