OUR MISSION

Let's Build a Pilot Project That Inspires Forest Communities Throughout the West

Catastrophic wildfire, food insecurity, collective trauma and the climate crisis are not issues that will resolve themselves. Help us develop an ecologically sustainable, economically viable action plan that supports the health of forest and forest folk alike.

FOR POSTERITY

Learning to Take the Long View

When Europeans first colonized the American West, the forests averaged 40 big trees per acre. Such trees could withstand wildfire, and their root systems sequestered enormous amounts of carbon into the earth. Short-term profiteering has led to environmental crises of epic proportions. We can avert catastrophe once we learn to think in longer time frames.

CO-CREATION

United We Stand

Let’s get real: our nation is crumbling under the weight of social media-fueled vitriol and prejudices. In contrast, our mutual aid network invites mountain residents of every stripe to come together and address one another’s most pressing needs.
