Join us at the VIRTUAL screening of
Pepperwood: Rising from the Ashes
Thursday, November 2 | 2 – 3:30pm PDT
Pepperwood and the Switzer Foundation are pleased to present a live, virtual screening of Pepperwood: Rising from the Ashes, a documentary film telling the story of the destruction and renewal prompted by recent ‘mega fires’ at Pepperwood.
Wildfires have become more frequent and widespread in California in recent years. At Pepperwood’s reserve, two major wildfires separated by just two years have burned through the landscape. The documentary explores how this fire-adapted ecosystem has responded to these events, how the indigenous peoples used fire to steward the land, and what is being done to understand better and prepare for future wildfires.
Join Pepperwood and the Switzer Network for a virtual screening of this award-winning documentary, with remarks and Q&A with filmmaker Ian Nelson and Pepperwood’s President/CEO and Switzer Fellow Dr. Lisa Micheli.
Watch the trailer here. A link to access the film after the screening for later viewing will be made available to attendees.
This event is open to Switzer Fellows, the Pepperwood community, and friends, colleagues, and connections of both groups. If you want to host an in-person watch party in your community, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
