Wildlife Rebounds in Fire-Affected Parks


The Park District is studying the impact of last year's wildfires on wildlife with motion sensor cameras capturing snapshots of wildlife in or near the burned areas. The images show various species of wildlife surviving and adapting as the areas recover. District biologists, ecologists and botanists anticipate that, because many of California’s ecosystems have evolved with fire, there will be benefits to plants and animals in the long run.
