Catching Fire: Prescribed Burning in Northern CA (ENTIRE FILM)

10,107 views 1 year ago
Catching Fire tells a compelling story of how a small but committed group of local,
tribal, state and federal land managers are bringing back the use of prescribed fire as
a tool to protect communities and ecosystems across Northern California. It examines
the use of fire by the Karuk Tribe of California, and the connection between the rise of megafires across the West and the last century of fire suppression. Drawing on interviews with
fire scientists, tribal and federal land managers, and fire savvy residents from across the
North State, this film provides insight on how our relationship to fire can be restored
through strategic use of fire as a powerful management tool.
