Fire and the Lands We Call Home - Hosted by Marin Art & Garden Center

This past October, the North Bay area experienced one of its most destructive and tragic human disasters in recorded history due to fire. Over the past hundred years, the human-fire relationship has been one riddled with animosity, and this antagonism has come at great cost to people and ecosystems alike. Yet it hasn’t always been this way, and it doesn’t have to be this way as we look to the future. Join Dr. Sasha Berleman, who leads Audubon Canyon Ranch’s Fire Ecology Program, to learn about fire’s long-standing and critical role in our ecosystems, and the ways our plant communities have come to depend on fire as an ecosystem process. Discover the thousands-years-old inextricable role that people played in that relationship, and how humans depended on fire for millennia in the same way our landscapes still do today. Finally, find out how we can renew our land management techniques and revolutionize our culture so that we can learn to live with fire rather than against it. Co-sponsored by One Tam.
