Wildfire + Human Health

About the Exhibit

This bilingual (Spanish/English) exhibition and related programs will address the following goals:

  • Foster public understanding of the health impact of wildfire and smoke exposure, especially on vulnerable and sensitive populations.
  • Promote health strategies to assess risks and minimize harms of wildfire and smoke exposure.
  • Foster public understanding of how land use practices and climate change contribute to more catastrophic wildfires.
  • Promote and explore strategies to mitigate and adapt to wildfire and climate change, especially in fire management and forest restoration.


This exhibit is made possible by an award from Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA), a program of National Institutes of Health (NIH) and in partnership with Oregon MESA, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and the World Forestry Center.
