Catastrophic wildfire impacts many aspects of life in Arizona: from the quality and sustainability of our water supplies to the safety and livelihood of people who live in mountain towns on the edge of our forests. Join the National Forest Foundation and the Greater Flagstaff Forests Partnership for a screening of the award-winning short film Fire & Water: Restoring Arizona’s Forests, produced by the Salt River Project and narrated by Emmy Award-winner Peter Coyote. Following the film, discover what a coalition of Arizona organizations, from federal agencies to nonprofits and private businesses, are doing to restore our landscape and protect our community, our forests, and our water from catastrophic fire.
