SFZC Tassajara Tales  - In this on-demand course, you’ll hear tales of Tassajara, told in the wild tongue of fire, flood, and the mountain landscape; in the secret dialog of the plants and animals who inhabit and shape it; and in the art and narrative of the people who have cared for and been shaped by this place for tens of thousands of years. This class is available through SFZC’s new Online Learning Center and is designed to be taken at your own pace.
