On May 4, Fire Preparedness Day, Eldorado residents can bring their slash to the ECIA community building parking lot, 1 Hacienda Loop, from 10-4 where the ECIA maintenance crew will run a chipper and direct traffic. 

The limit is one pick-up truck load so that as many residents as possible can participate.

Era of Megafires Movie Showing + Panel Discussion

The Fireshed Coalition is hosting a second showing of Era of Megafires during Wildfire Preparedness week.

Jean Cocteau.png

The last showing was 100 percent sold out. Join us on May 1st at 6:00 pm for a showing of the film followed by a panel discussion. Tickets are $8 and will be available for purchase on the Jean Cocteau website in early-April.

The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts to talk about the risk of wildfire here in Santa Fe, the impacts fire could have and what the Santa Fe Fireshed Coalition partners are doing to prepare. While the movie was produced in the Northwest, it still is very applicable to the Southwest. You can get a feel for the hour-long movie by watching this shorter 15-minute TED talk beforehand.   

Additional information:

The rise of highly destructive megafires -- wildfires over 100,000 acres -- has become one of today's most pressing and complex problems, threatening our communities, homes, businesses and even our very way of life. Facing the reality of this issue is daunting, but like all wicked problems, through education and action we can change the way fire comes to our forests and communities.  

The Era of Megafires is a 60-minute multi-media presentation that combines the research of Dr. Paul Hessburg (Pacific Northwest Research Station, U.S. Forest Service) with the visual storytelling of award-winning film company, North 40 Productions. It’s presented in the form of fast-moving, short, topic-based talks interspersed with compelling video vignettes and animations.
