Support Fire Recovery on Feather River Lands

The Feather River Watershed is crucial for California's water supply—these are the headwaters of the State Water Project, a source of water for 27 million people—and its habitats sustain over 300 species of wildlife. We need your help as we work toward an ecologically sound recovery on the lands we've conserved, together..

Ways to Help our Communities

lend a hand for Dixie Fire recovery

There are many ways to help those impacted by the Dixie Fire. From farmers, small businesses, schools, volunteer firefighters, and families, many people have had their lives turned upside down and could use a hand up. A grassroots website has emerged as a hub for verified relief campaigns—dixiefirerelief.org. Thank you for your generosity!
