Underground Library at Sagehen Creek Field Station
August 2019

In the fall of 2019, a biochar burn of books from the Underground Library collection occurred at the Sagehen Creek Field Station in California's High Sierras.

Distributed among forested areas surrounding the research station, the exhibition was part of the Future Forests initiative to bring artists and scientists together to change the conversation around wildfire management in the West. The exhibition, Natural Discourse at Sagehen, was curated by Shirley Watts. Biochar kilns were created and supported by the talented engineers at DOER Marine.
