Fire has shaped our past and continues to shape our future in these hills. November marks the fifth anniversary of the Woolsey Fire, the 30th anniversary of the Old Topanga Fire, and the 85th anniversary of the 1938 Topanga Fire, and those are only three of the more than 30 significant wildfires that have impacted the local mountains over the past 100 years. Join author and Topanga New Times editor Suzanne Guldimann for a talk about our rugged, beautiful, and disaster-prone home, and local historian Scott King, a member of Arson Watch who experienced the 1993 Old Topanga Fire firsthand. The speakers will discuss how T-CEP (Topanga Coalition for Emergency Preparedness) and Arson Watch help to keep our canyon safe.
Join Suzanne and Scott with the Topanga Historical Society on Wednesday, December 6th at TCC. There will be a potluck dinner at 7pm, with the presentation starting at 8pm. Water, tea, and coffee will be provided.
