Fire and Forest Health was an official selection at the 2019 Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City, CA.
Fire and Forest Health showcases wildland firefighters, biologists, foresters, and fuels specialists as they work together to stop catastrophic wildfires and increase forest health. This film was shot on location within the Tahoe National Forest and features Tahoe National Forest employees.
