What can the forest teach us of grief, of joy, of humanity? This week, poet and scientist Maya Khosla invites listeners into the forests of Northern California to find deep reverence for the power of biodiversity. Maya's expertise on wildfires shines through this deep and well-informed conversation as she and Ayana share a love for the forest and deep-seated awe for the complexity of forest life. Maya introduces listeners to the science behind forest fires and urges us to see fire as not simply destructive, but rather as one of the many cycles of Earth. From practices of cultural burning to current studies on post-fire diversity, the creative and regenerative power of the forest cannot be overlooked.

Maya Khosla is a wildlife biologist and writer. She served as Sonoma County Poet Laureate (2018-2020), bringing Sonoma's communities together through poetry gatherings and field walks after the 2017 fires. Sonoma County Conservation Council (SCCC) selected her as one of the 2020 Environmentalists of the Year. Her poetry books include All the Fires of Wind and Light from Sixteen Rivers Press (2020 PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Literary Award), Keel Bone from Bear Star Press (Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize), and Web of Water: Life in Redwood Creek. Her writing has been featured in documentary films including Village of Dust, City of Water, about the water crises in rural India.
