Our hearts go out to those who have been displaced and have experienced such tremendous loss over the last couple of days. In this time of uncertainty and threat, we are all looking for ways to support our neighbors. Here are just a few ways you can take action today. We ask our communities to remain vigilant with the continued threat of fire, heed evacuation notices, and limit exposure to smokey air. Take care of yourself and take care of your neighbors. Please consider donating if you can to help our neighboring watershed communities.
