Naturalist, travel guide and Sonoma County resident Michael Ellis first heard about the North Bay fires at 3:30 a.m., when his son called from India and told him to evacuate. He joins Forum to discuss how the region’s unique woodlands and grasslands are recovering after the devastating fires. He’ll also talk about his 2017 adventures, which included trips to Bhutan and Tanzania. And we’ll hear about this summer’s influx of humpback whales into San Francisco Bay.
