Recovery and mitigation projects need your help!  

Chipper In action 2Good news: Many of you have requested help clearing burned trees or thinning green trees to reduce fire danger.
That long list of projects shows that our community’s recovery is in full swing, and more of you are taking charge of your wildfire preparedness.
Not so good news: With our current number of volunteers, it’s taking time to complete all those requests. Our volunteers are working hard and diligently, but we need a lot more hands to get this work done more quickly. If you’re currently on our to-do list, we appreciate your patience.
Here’s how to help 
You can volunteer for a work project: Most projects involve simple tasks, such as raking, or dragging branches. You can even get your kids involved, provided you accompany family members younger than age 18. Click here to learn more about volunteering. We need you!
You can recruit groups to help with projects: Many church groups, service clubs, corporations or other organizations would like to help, but don’t know how. If you know of a group like this, tell them about this healthy outdoor service opportunity. Or simply provide the contact information to the Resource Center, and we’ll contact the group.
