Description

Work In Progress

When the Rim Fire burned 256,000 acres of the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park in 2013, it exposed the impacts these high intensity wildfires are having on watersheds, wildlife, and carbon storage. It also forged a coalition of environmentalists, loggers, scientists, officials, and land managers who need to know how to respond to this megafire and forestall the next one. See clips of this upcoming feature film and join a discussion on how our forests are being pushed to a tipping point.

DISCUSSION WITH:
- Filmmakers Stephen Most and Kevin White
- Malcolm North, Fire & Forest Ecologist, U.S. Forest Service
- Mary Ellen Carroll, Director of Emergency Planning & Security, SF Public Utilities Commission

This is a free event, no tickets required. Seating is limited to first 80 people at the door. Doors at 12:00pm, event 12.30pm.
