WATERAX: Supporting What We Believe In

This is WATERAX’s third year sponsoring the Wildland Fire Digital Storytelling Micro-Grant, part of the Smokey Generation Wildland Fire Oral History Project.  The grants are awarded to deserving writers and creative people, many with frontline experience in wildland firefighting, all passionate about the wildlands, to help them tell stories that explore the social and ecological aspects of wildland fire.

The goal? Make as many people as possible aware of the realities of wildland firefighting and the issues surrounding how wildfires are fought and prevented in a warming world where they are making an increasingly larger impact on people’s lives.

If wildland firefighting is part of your life as it is ours, we think their work is very much worth your time.
