From the makers of Guardians of the Grasslands, comes a new short documentary — Too Close to Home.
Too Close to Home documents recent fires in British Columbia, and showcases the opportunity to utilize cattle to reduce fire risk.
Too Close to Home premieres April 20, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. MT, with a panel discussion and Q&A to follow.
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.
