About Miriam H Morrill
Miriam is a retired fire management specialist and environmental biologist. After studying environmental biology and zoology at UC Cal Poly Humboldt, she spent the first half of her career as a wildlife biologist and collateral duty firefighter in California and other western states. Halfway through her career, she was recruited into a fire management position to help develop, guide, and support collaborative community wildfire mitigation, prevention, and readiness programs in California and around the United States. Many of her efforts emphasized accessible communication and education approaches, which allowed her to support a number of international fire planning workshops and training programs. In retirement, Miriam has done consulting and illustration work for a number of fire scientists, educators, and training programs around the United States, Canada, and Europe. She developed the Pyrosketchology program and book to help support deeper place-based fire education and awareness.
