"Are the Trees Falling? How Pine Beetle and Wildfire Shape Rocky Mountain Forests"

When: Mon., Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2010

For English nerds, the phrase "red plague" might suggest Edgar Allan Poe's "The Masque of the Red Death," in which a gruesome figure strikes a crowded ballroom with sudden, ruddy disaster. Colorado State University professors David Theobald and Jason Sibold might use the term to describe what's happening to Colorado's forests, in which the mass die-off comes courtesy of pine beetles rather than a Gothic metaphor. At 7:30 tonight, go to Colorado College's Gaylord Hall (902 N. Cascade Ave.) for the first State of the Rockies free lecture of the season, focused on the causes, dangers and remedies for beetle-kill, or learn more at stateoftherockies.com. Masque attire not required. — Claire Swinford
