RV-Documentary Film Series - Wilder Than Wild

RV-Documentary Film Series - Wilder Than Wild

Friday, February 15th

7:00-9:00 p.m.

"We are experiencing now the fires of the future.” - CAL FIRE Chief, Ken Pimlott.  Wilder than Wild: Fire, Forests, and the Future reveals how fire suppression and climate change
have exposed our forests and wildland-urban landscapes to large, high severity wildfires, while greenhouse gases released from these fires contribute to global warming.

In this one-hour documentary, filmmaker Kevin White takes us on a journey from the Rim Fire of 2013 to the wine country wildfires of 2017.

Along the way, we learn how the proactive use of prescribed fire can reduce reliance on reactive fire suppression, we see a California tribe renew their tradition of cultural fire, and we meet stakeholder groups working with scientists and resource managers to build consensus on how to restore and manage the lands we love and depend on.
