Fires @ ALE

The Fires @ ALE library


This page is under construction

This page provides further information from, and relevant to, the Fires @ ALE project. We will publish reports, proposals and papers resulting from our work here. Links to previous reports and papers are also provided.

For those seeking additional background on the ecology and management of ALE, the Fish and Wildlife Service have an excellent page on the Hanford Reach National Monument, of which ALE is a part. They have also published a fairly comprehensive bibiliography for the Monument.

For those seeking botanical information for ALE, please visit our Flora of ALE page.
