Beyond Bark Beetles

The ten short films in the Beyond Bark Beetles series share the story of the bark beetle outbreak in our western forests and show how the U.S. Forest Service is responding.

The project is a collaboration of the Medicine Bow and Routt National Forests and the University of Wyoming Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources. Special thanks to Brian Glaspell for dreaming up and launching the venture, and to Anne Jakle for fostering the partnership.

All videos were produced by Aaron Voos and Emilene Ostlind and were filmed and edited by Morgan Heim in 2014.
