The CZU Lightning Complex Fire has caused heartbreaking devastation and disruption for our community, affecting our beloved state parks, as well as those who work in them.

In response, and through our unique position as co-management partners with State Parks, we have established the “Friends Fire Fund.” The fund will initially provide direct, short-term assistance for those most affected by the fire, followed by investments to be made in long-term recovery work for parks that have been damaged.

Together, we will get through this crisis. If you would like to join us in our effort to support both people and parks during the recovery process, we very much welcome your support. Donations can be made on our website:

Thank you for your support.
