Event Description

Want to learn more about how to increase the use of intentional fire? Join this webinar on Friday, March 24th from 4:00pm – 6:00pm to learn from team members of the California Indian Basketweavers Association (CIBA) and the founders of Torchbearr. Participants will improve their understanding of how to bring more people together to learn how to increase the use of intentional fire.

Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at University of California, Berkeley Carolyn Smith and Chairperson of the California Indian Basketweavers Association (CIBA) Alice Lincoln-Cook will explain the roots of activism that shaped the formation of CIBA, the legacy of fire suppression, the obstacles to gathering basketweaving plants, and the relationship between basketweaving and tending to the land. The Operations Director at Torchbearr Scot Steinbring will discuss the roles of partnerships in getting to scale of prescribed fire. The Planning Director at Torchbearr Erica Terence will summarize the origin and purpose of the non-profit organization Torchbearr. Torchbearr’s mission is to promote prescribed fire for a brighter fire future for all.
