Walk with Obi: Burned Forests of The Sierra
Friday | September 25, 2020 | 11:00 am — 12:00 pm
California has experienced its deadliest wildfire seasons in recent history. Looking across a scorched and blackened environment, we ache to make things better. But are our efforts to restore the land and prevent fires in fact making things worse? Produced by Heyday, this once-in-a-lifetime virtual walk with Obi Kaufmann, author of The Forests of California (Heyday/September 2020), is your chance to journey into the charred woods of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains to explore firsthand the connection between art & science, the impact of climate breakdown, habitat recovery and restoration, and how we can minimize our human footprint to not only allow nature to heal itself, but create a brighter, more sustainable future for ourselves and the next generation. Live Q&A with attendees following the event. In partnership with Sierra State Parks Foundation and Word After Word Bookstore in Truckee, CA.Visit Event Website >>
