THE CALWOOD FIRE

On October 17, 2020, the Calwood fire burned more than half of our beautiful mountain top.  Our buildings were spared, but restoration of our pristine Ponderosa Pine forest, our outdoor classroom, will take 5-10 years.

The Cal-Wood Fire was fast moving and caused a lot of damage, not only on Cal-Wood’s property, but on Federal and Boulder County lands, and many homes were lost. The Sheriff’s investigation on the cause of the Cal-Wood Fire was released. The investigator’s stated that their initial “human cause” statement has been clarified to be “undetermined.” 

 

600 ACRES BURNED
