SEARCHING FOR GOLD SPOT is a film about the amazing comeback of life in forests after wildfire. The film follows teams of scientists and firefighters through the Sierra Nevada, the Cascades Mountains and beyond.
Many people believe that forests are destroyed after wildfire – so they are logged.
The film will show hundreds of living, breathing reasons why post-fire forests need to be saved from logging. Rare black-backed woodpeckers, goshawks, deer, bears, butterflies, bugs – a high diversity of animals (and plants) thrive in burned forests.
Field biologists hike for miles in search of rare woodpeckers and other wildlife. Their discoveries are presented with great gusto. Firefighters explain the best ways to keep people and back-country homes safe while keeping the wild – well – wild. Above all, the film will show communities on their journeys of discovery.
Meanwhile…the new sciences face old management methods – logging and clear-cutting. Thousands of acres are being logged – because they are not yet valued as gorgeous, important, and rich with life.
