Join us as Brian Jackson, Park Biologist for Quetico Provincial Park, shares recent work examining a historical perspective on red pine and white pine but in a contemporary context. He will explore the relationship between these majestic pines and wildfire and the challenges in managing a wilderness park to perpetuate their abundance and distribution.  He will also share the historical and cultural significance of white and red pine as revealed through physical evidence still observed within the park and being revealed through collaborative research projects. 

Brian is a highly respected biologist who has spent decades working in the vicinity of Atikokan and has become a passionate advocate for the scientific approach to wilderness conservation.
