The NFF’s White River National Forest Restoration Fund supports the restoration of areas impacted by the Grizzly Creek Fire, as well as other lands on the 2.3-million-acre White River National Forest (WRNF) in Colorado.
The Fund was formed in response to the Grizzly Creek Fire, which started as a small brush fire on August 10, 2020, has changed the landscape of the WRNF and its surrounding communities overnight. Burning over 20,000 acres in just one week, the fire has severely impacted parts of one of Colorado’s beloved natural sites, Glenwood Canyon. Much of this area will not recover on its own and needs our help. Restoration of the canyon and adjacent areas impacted by the fire is critical to local communities who steward these lands, as well as the small businesses and industries that rely on tourism, recreation, and healthy landscapes.
