Caldor Trails Restoration Fund
The Caldor Fire raged through an area containing some of the region’s favorite trails. The fire burned many parts of trails, bridges and trail infrastructure. Between damage from fire itself, as well as from dozers constructing suppression lines, more than 15 miles of trail suffered damage in the Tahoe Basin.
Areas that burned hottest will be prone to increased damage from winter storms due to lack of vegetation and hydrophobic soils which can contribute to debris flows and landslides. We will need to rebuild the damaged infrastructure as well as mitigate the potential for increased runoff by installing erosion control measures.
We are working closely with the US Forest Service, TAMBA, and the Tahoe Rim Trail as they access the impact and the support that will be needed to rebuild and restore the trails.
Join us in restoring our forest and rebuilding our trails in the aftermath of this devastating fire.
All donations made before Dec 31, 2021 will be doubled up to $25,000 thanks to a generous grant from the Grimm Family Foundation. Help us meet this match!
