During this holiday season, we’re going to be presenting excerpts from Living Downstream: The Environmental Justice Podcast. Northern California Public Media launched the project this fall – and we’ve got a collection of stories that we believe is unrivaled on the subject of environmental justice.
Today – Indian journalists Allison Herrera and Debra Utacia Krol visit Santa Rosa’s Pepperwood Preserve. In this excerpt from "Firing Forests to Save Them: Could Native Traditions Save Lives?" they learn how native practices could begin to tame California’s out of control wildfires -- like last year’s Tubbs Fire and this year’s even more destructive and deadly Camp Fire.
