Followed by a Q&A with the film makers and panel discussion.
Traditional antagonist organizations are coming together forming unprecedented partnerships in order to solve the wildfire issues, but it will take every one of us to bring balance to the landscape.
Wildfires are becoming a global issue, and California is one of the places that is hit the hardest because of its dry climate. We discovered that in the face of the imminent danger, communities, and organizations that were opponents in the past are coming together to find innovative solutions. They are forming large scale unprecedented partnerships that have adopted cutting edge solutions implementing the latest data models along with Native American ecological knowledge. If they are successful, this can influence work around the world. However, it will take every one of us to solve the wildfire issue. Be informed, be involved, be part of the conversation and part of the solution.
The film is based on interviews with leading experts from state, federal, and grassroots organizations, water agencies, community partnerships, and so on.
