Walk with Obi: Burned Forests of the Sierra

September 25, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

| $10 – $145

Take a once-in-a-lifetime virtual walk with Obi Kaufmann as he explores habitat recovery & restoration of a burned forest in the Sierras.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY HEYDAY

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.

Introduction by nationally renowned pro-skier, POW ambassador, and environmentalist Amie Engerbretson and a live Q&A with Obi and Amie following the event.

EXTRA PERK: Every attendee and ticket level will receive a 10% discount to the 14th annual Heyday Harvest, honoring Greg Sarris, Innosanto Nagara, and California’s independent booksellers on October 22, 2020.

FOR THOSE THAT CAN’T MAKE THE LIVE EVENT: If you can’t make the live program at 11am, you can still join Obi on his walk and get all the perks of buying a ticket – but you need to register now! We’ll make an exclusive link available following the event to everyone that purchased a ticket. Just buy the ticket of your choice and you’ll get the usual confirmation materials and perks along with an email following the event as to where you can watch a replay.
