Wildfire!
June 5 through July 10, 2003

 Sponsored by Plum Creek Timber Manufacturing and USDA Forest Service

Wildfire! features the photography of two well known photographers in the Flathead, Karen Nichols and Gary Harding, as well as the photographs taken by the 'hot shot' crews of the Forest Service and other forest service personnel of the Flathead National Forest Service. 

Wildfire!
captures the power of the fire, the incredible task the Federal, State and County agencies have in controlling fires and saving structures and, in the end, the forest rejuvenation caused by fires.
