About this Event

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.
