THE CAL-WOOD FIRE

This video shares not only the damage from the Cal-Wood Fire, but also hope that our beautiful land will recover with time, restoration, and community support.

Over the next few days, we’re going to be surveying the Cal-Wood land and sharing videos as we go. We’ve got a TikTok​  so go on over there to follow along or stay tuned to our Instagram or Facebook stories.

.

We will show you the devastation - what was lost and how we need help, BUT we are an education center so we’re taking this as a learning opportunity. We will share facts about the fire’s effect on Cal-Wood’s land, and we’ll show you how fire mitigation helped protect some of our land.

.

We’ve been through fires and floods - but we need your help to survive now.

This picture was taken on Wednesday night. It gives us hope that soon we will able to share our beautiful land again and allow people the opportunity to experience the mountains. We are extremely grateful for everyone who has been a part of this emergency and our community who continues to reach out with support. You can click the link in our bio to donate or visit our website to sign up to volunteer in the future: www.calwood.org/volunteer
.
The team at the Boulder Office of Emergency Management have updated that the CalWood Fire is 10,073 acres and 55% contained. You can follow their updates here: boulderoem.com

It is incredible to watch firefighters work tirelessly to protect Cal-Wood. The firefighters eat breakfast at 6:00 a.m., work all day digging and back burning, return to the lodge to eat dinner between 7:00 and 8:30, and then, take turns driving around overnight to monitor the fire. We are in awe as we watch them firsthand working so hard to protect the west side of Cal-Wood--the land, the cabins, the lodge, and our staff housing. 


Although the west side is under control, there are still a few hot spots and  areas burning next to Cal-Wood. Hosting the firefighters here at Cal-Wood is an honor for us. We are so incredibly grateful for their hard work to save Cal-Wood. 

 
 

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Tuesday, October 20, 2020

I am so grateful for all the community support and well wishes. All of the personal notes and posts about Cal-Wood are truly helping us to get through this crisis.  Muchísimas gracias.

 

Tuesday, October 20,2020

While the buildings may have survived, Cal-Wood’s pristine ponderosa pine forest - our beautiful outdoor classroom - has been badly damaged.  We toured some of the fire damage yesterday, and there is so much restoration work that will need to be done so that we can resume our environmental education programming including:

  1. Soil and Erosion Control

  2. Rebuilding trails and bridges

  3. Reseeding grasses

  4. Planting trees

  5. Hazardous Tree Removal, and many others.

Cal-Wood needs assistance and donations to help restore and recover. 

 
 

Sunday, October 18, 2020

All staff were evacuated and are safe. Cal-Wood staff reported the fire at noon on Saturday. 


The Cal-Wood buildings, including the lodge and cabins, are not damaged. Cal-Wood is housing 30 firefighters at the cabins and lodge, and Rafael Salgado, executive director, has permission to stay on site, and is feeding and taking care of these community heroes.
