St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary Wilder than Wild: Fire, Forests, and the Future at St. Paul’s Parish Hall, 1924 Trinity Avenue, Walnut Creek on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 3:30 p.m., immediately following the Community Climate Rally & Environmental Action Fair in Civic Park.
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 these fires.
The screening at St. Paul’s church is part of the Season of Creation, and a larger effort to engage communities in conversations about the future of wildfire. A discussion will follow the screening, with the film’s writer/producer Stephen Most.
St. Paul’s, a member of Interfaith Climate Action Network, recognizes the importance of building community awareness about mitigation strategies in this new age of wildfire.
