USA We are so excited to announce our first ever ‘Fire Stories’ road trip – launching this Friday! Bethany, the founder, will be hitting the road to collect interviews and stories from wildland firefighters in Idaho, Oregon, and Northern California. We hope it will be the first of many trips designed to capture, preserve, and share the stories and oral histories of wildland fire throughout the United States. BUT, we need your support! If you can kick in a few dollars to help cover the hotels along the route, please check out our GoFundMe campaign!
These stories and histories are so important to the wildland fire community. Even a $5 donation will help us capture more interviews. Show your support by spreading the word!
