Fire Ecology Hike at Malibu Bluffs


On a late afternoon in January, 2007, a small fire began near Malibu Bluffs Park. A combination of high winds and low humidity allowed the fire to quickly spread across the park and to nearby homes. But nature is resilient and by April, visitors to the park were seeing signs of new growth. Fire ecologists tell us that, paradoxically, the conditions seen after a wildfire are the very circumstances that promote rapid regeneration and renewal.

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority are offering a fire ecology hike to help explain some of the principles of fire ecology, using conditions and examples found at the park. This easy walk is suitable for families with children.

Saturday, May 12
4:00 - 5:30 PM
Malibu Bluffs Park
24250 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu
at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon Road
Free Program

Join us as we explore the park and observe the growth and renewal that occurs after a wildfire.
