Sonoma Ecology Center, in partnership with Sebastiani Theatre Foundation, is proud to sponsor this screening of “Wilder Than Wild” at the Sebastiani Theatre in Sonoma Plaza.
“Wilder Than Wild” is a one-hour documentary film by Kevin White addressing how fire suppression and climate change have exposed our forests and communities to large, high-severity wildfires. The film screens on Oct. 8 – exactly one year after wildfires ignited around the North Bay.
The film starts at 7 p.m., with light refreshments and wine served at 6 p.m. A thought-provoking panel discussion will follow the film, featuring noted fire ecologist Jared Childress; Sonoma County Sheriff Rob Giordano, who helped guide emergency response during the several-day ordeal; Sonoma Ecology Center wildlife biologist Caitlin Cornwall; and White and the film’s producer, Steven Most. The panel will be moderated by legendary Bay Area guide Doug McConnell, former host of “Bay Area Backroads” and currently the host of NBC’s “OpenRoad.”
