Donors to CalaverasGROWN Community & Forest Recovery This program provides hope for our community by controlling erosion. In controlling erosion we are also brightening the environment at our community members’ homesites, protecting downstream water quality, allowing more water to percolate into our aquifers, tending the forest for the most rapid regeneration possible as well as protecting private roadways and other infrastructure. Thank you for donating….you have made this program possible. They consist of individuals, community organizations, businesses, foundations and government entities.
CalaverasGROWN is working to help our community members and forest in the wake of the Butte Fire. With over ten percent of the total surface area of our county burned we are on the ground helping those affected by the burn get back on their feet with their homes, gardens and farms. Many of the houses, farms, gardens, ranches, orchards and vineyards that supplied quality food and fiber products to our community, homes for our community and jobs for our residents have been damaged or destroyed. CalaverasGROWN uses donations to provide hope by helping our community and forest recover.
