In September 2020, the Creek Fire raged through many mountain communities including the area surrounding Shaver Lake and Huntington Lake. In its wake, forested mountains were burned to charcoal sticks and many historic landmarks were decimated. The collective hope that our mountain communities will thrive for future generations has not been burnt by the Creek Fire. If anything, our hope has intensified.
To empower our hope to become a reality, the Central Sierra Historical Society has established the Central Sierra Resiliency Fund to ensure that resources will be available to support future, collaborative efforts to respond to the most pressing needs.
In launching this effort, local community members and concerned professionals have collaborated to create a Resiliency Council to administer the restricted fund and determine funding recipients. We look forward to partnering with other local, state, and national organizations to ensure resources to empower the mountain community to get people living, working, and recreating on the mountain again.
