WHAT IS THE ERA OF MEGAFIRES?

The rise of highly destructive megafires -- wildfires over 100,000 acres -- has become one of today's most pressing and complex problems. Our communities, homes, businesses and even our very way of life are threatened by them. Facing the reality of this issue can be nothing short of daunting. But like all wicked problems, through education we can change the way fire comes to our forests and communities. 

The Era of Megafires (EOM) is a 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. Utilizing animations, graphics and video vignettes, this presentation is designed to engage and inspire audiences, as well as provide an effective educational tool for organizations who are working tirelessly to improve the wildfire situation.

EOM is now available for licensing in three formats, including a digital download for events, an educational DVD for the classroom (only available to educational institutions through TUGG distribution) and live, presented in person by Paul Hessburg and North 40 Productions. AND each of these formats are available in 20- and 60-minute versions.

”THE ERA OF MEGAFIRES IS ENTHRALLING, ENJOYABLE AND POWERFULLY EFFECTIVE. IT IMPELS TANGIBLE ACTIONS SO WE CAN DEVELOP OUR CAPACITY TO LIVE WITH FIRE, LONG-TERM, IN THE LANDSCAPES WE CALL HOME.”
