Forests that have experienced fire are vibrant, dazzling, full of life, and rapidly regenerating. Wildflowers and thousands of tree seedlings are bursting from the earth; the air is full of birdsong. The flowers attract insects, which attract birds and smaller mammals, which in turn attract the raptors and larger mammals. And so the cascading effects continue! Because our understanding is young and rather new, it is quite common to see these public forests logged very soon after wildfire. The best of the young forests—saplings and wildflowers and entire watersheds—are razed to the ground to support plantation-style projects. But there is plenty of hope! Join us as Maya Khosla shares a visually exquisite celebration of wilderness and an awareness of the challenges involved with saving it.
