Benefit Screening May 14, 2019, 6:30PM at CineArts Sequoia Theater in Mill Valley
FIRESafe MARIN presents The Camp Fire Documentary, which tells a small part of the story one county experienced during its darkest day. The Camp Fire Documentary is a powerful and moving first person account from individuals and First Responders that battled the inferno that struck Concow, Paradise, Magalia and Chico in Butte County California on November 8, 2018. This documentary was produced by local filmmaker Nancy Hamilton who compiled a substantial portion of her film from people’s cell phone footage of the catastrophic fire.
The 50 minute film will include an introduction by the filmmaker, and a panel discussion will follow including: the Camp Fire's Deputy Incident Commander; Camp Fire survivors, Stephen Murray, a 31-year resident of Paradise, and a father of two young children, who single-handedly rescued more than 60 senior citizens from a burning mobile home community; and local wildfire experts and leaders.
All funds raised will be distributed to charities supporting Camp Fire survivors, and to support FIRESafe MARIN's fledgling goat grazing program to reduce wildfire hazards in Marin.
Tickets are $25 - all proceeds will be split between Camp Fire Survivors and FIRESafe MARIN's Community Wildfire Reduction Goat Grazing Program. Discounted tickets are available:
Star Creek Land Stewards
Thanks for providing 1200 goats for marin's grazing priogram in 2019. Star Creek Land Stewards is a land stewardship and contract grazing company established from the hills of Star Creek Ranch, spanning the lines of Santa Cruz and San Benito counties. Star Creek Land Stewards originated from the planned grazing efforts at Star Creek Ranch, from the hills spanning the lines of Santa Cruz and San Benito counties. With time these efforts have evolved into a competitive and professional grazing outfit, taking what we have learned from the ranch out into a greater lands of California.
Stone Step Farm
Thanks for providing the baby goats! Stone Steps Farm is a small, family farm operated by Leigh Kenny, John Cline, and sons in Nicasio, CA. We raise mini Nubian dairy goats (the type attending the FIRESafe Marin event). We also raise a small number of Pygora goats and sheep for fiber. All of our animals are protected by working livestock guardian dogs. The goats and sheep are wonderful land management partners—they clear brush (including poison oak, blackberry vines, and coyote brush) and they reduce the overall fuel load on our land. Through soil testing with Fibershed, we’re also measuring their ability to help us sequester carbon in the soil.
