    'This is what we do': Flagstaff residents help one another prepare for disaster

    Arizona Conservation Corps

    July 26, 2019 | FLAGSTAFF — At night, when winds are calm, the smoke subsides, revealing a mosaic of orange flames that glows like stars — a galaxy of destruction cradled by the dark mountains sitting below the twinkling night sky.

    Mayor Coral Evans saw a similar sight when she was a child... She knows what kind of devastation these fires can cause, long after the flames are out.

    Thanks to the quick response from firefighters and some rain, the Museum Fire is nowhere near as intense as the Radio Fire, the 2010 Schultz Fire and some others in recent memory, and the community is grateful for their work.

    Arizona Conservation Corps

    April 8, 2019 | "One of the many remarkable actualities about a hike in the Picture Canyon Natural and Cultural Preserve is the ever-present opportunity to be awed by wildlife. I've been surprised by elk sightings there, but the time I witnessed a herd of 10 - six of which being fawns - moving quietly through the woods was a truly marvelous moment."
