But we can't move forward--and could never have gotten anywhere in the first place--without a broad and increasing range of excellent partners. We need a fundamental shift in our cultural relationship to fire and forestry, and to get there will involve 5 prongs: Art, Business, Policy, Management, and Science. In particular, art is how you change culture, so we need an artistic response at the scale of the management response.
Joining with the Nevada County Arts Council, Arts & Culture Eldorado, the Nevada Museum of Art - Center for Art + Environment and many socially-engaged artists and other supporters, we have initiated an effort called Future Forests. See the website to learn more about us, see what's already happening, and to get involved if our work meshes with yours. We always need more partners!
