The event is free and open to the public.

Wilder than Wild is a one-hour documentary that reveals how fire suppression and climate change have exposed Western landscapes to large, high intensity wildfires. The film goes on to explore strategies that are being developed to help mitigate the impact of California’s changing wildfires.

The screening in South Tahoe is part of a larger effort to engage communities in conversations about the future of wildfire and actions that can be taken now to protect lives and homes. A panel discussion including forest management experts, public land management agencies, local fire districts, local law enforcement, Liberty Utilities, and the Tahoe Network of Fire Adapted Communities will accompany the screening.
