Can You Help Us Help our Community?

As winter approaches, please consider volunteering some of your time to help us educate and mobilize our neighbors to protect our community, homes and environment from wildfire. There are several specific areas where we can use help:

In late November or early December, we need to elect one or three new members to our board. The board meets once a month for an hour or two to plan and prioritize our efforts and the more people who are involved, the more responsive our work can be.

We need an experienced person to help us develop a vigorous social media presence.

We need people to help bring neighborhoods together to secure their shared roads and plan for evacuations. The Bonny Doon CERT has a Map Your Neighborhood Program that meshes well with this.

We need people who are relatively insensitive to poison oak to help us clean up the last remnants of the flagging that we used to lay out the Warrenella Shaded Fuel Break.

We always need monitors to help us when we work with Ben Lomond Camp Crews on projects. In order to qualify, you must take a one-time, four-hour training at the camp; trainings are offered a few times a year during rainy season. We will post announcements as these are scheduled.

If you are interested in helping us with any of these, please contact us.
