      Dr. Paul Hessburg – Forestry Scientist

      Megafires: How Do You Want Your Smoke?

      Paul Hessburg, Ph.D is a research ecologist who has been studying historical and modern era forests for more than 30 years.  His work documents large changes in forest conditions and how these changes, along with climate change, have set the stage for large and severe wildfires.  Local wildfires that ravaged his favorite forests in 2014 and 2015 served as the impetus for Dr. Hessburg to make his findings more accessible to the public.   Dr. Hessburg contends that “the current megafire issue is a social problem with an ecological explanation. To tackle it, we need to understand how we got here, what’s at stake, and what each of us can do.”   His work with the Forest Service at the Pacific Northwest Research Station earned him the Forest Service’s Distinguished Scientist Award in 2017. Dr. Hessburg is also an Affiliate Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle.

                      Event Description

                      Everyone’s invited on an amazing journey with Elmo to discover the “power of yet” in Sesame Street Live! Make Your Magic when the show comes to Fresno this Fall!  Building on a successful tour with Feld Entertainment’s inaugural Sesame Street Live! show last season in partnership with the non-profit educational organization Sesame Workshop, this production features favorite Sesame Street pals Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and more in a brand-new, magical adventure live on stage.

                      Elmo is inspired to learn a magic trick when he meets magician extraordinaire Justin, who has come to Sesame Street to perform a magic show.  But there’s one problem…Elmo doesn’t know how to do magic!  Through Justin’s encouragement to practice, work hard and never give up, Elmo embarks on an extraordinary journey.  He learns that it’s okay to make mistakes and that magic can be found anywhere when you believe in yourself and the power of what’s yet to be.  Cookie Monster and Gonger uncover the science and fun of baking while Abby Cadabby experiences the transformative abilities of caterpillars.  Big Bird learns about the magnifying magic of shadow puppetry while Rosita orchestrates a rhythmic beat using everyday objects around her.  And artist Grover mixes up the pigment power of the three primary colors.  With high-energy dance numbers and a soundtrack that’s sure to get everyone out of their seats, Sesame Street Live! Make Your Magic is an inspirational introduction to live theater and the art of illusion that the entire family will enjoy.

                      During the Sesame Street Live! pre-show experience, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and take photos with Elmo and two of his furry friends before the show right in their own neighborhood!  At this unique, up-close-and-personal experience (offered at an additional charge), families can tour the on-stage neighborhood with special surprise visits from Elmo & Friends for photos; participate in a scavenger hunt and receive a special prize upon completion and experience up-close magic tricks from a roaming magician.
