This study seeks to answer the question, “How can collective trauma tied to recent events become a mechanism for telling the full story of land?”

We will focus our work on points along Marshall and NCAR Fire scars and other locations significant in telling  indigenous, climate change, and wildfire stories in South Boulder. This study features outreach to wildland-urban interface neighborhoods in Boulder (to be determined) to ascertain appropriate fire-wise measures with a focus on landscapes of community healing and resilience. We will conduct focus groups with youth, local non-profit partners, and open space and local government planning officials. We will summarize and communicate our findings through design displays, booklets and other media. These will be disseminated to communities that use the open space mountain parks impacted by the Marshall Fire as well as non-profit organizations and local government partners.
