After witnessing firsthand how grazing can impact fire behavior, ranchers, researchers and municipalities have come together to collaborate on a series of pilot projects utilizing cattle to reduce fire risk adjacent to urban communities. Grass feeds fires, but it can also feed cattle.

This online event will feature a screening of Too Close to Home followed by a panel discussion with representatives from the BC Cattlemen’s Association, The Government of BC and a local rancher involved in the project and end with questions from the audience.
