Good Fire in Shone Forest

As the new year kicks off, we want to celebrate our partnership with the Santa Rosa Junior College. Our involvement in their Wildfire Resilience Internship Program (WRP) at Shone Farm has been life-altering! Thank you to the student workforce, staff members, and local community members who contribute to its success.

Over the last six months at Shone Farm, ten student interns have received hands-on training and experience focused on three areas: fuel reduction in the wildland urban interface, invasive species management, and forest and grassland stewardship to enhance biodiversity and productivity of wildlife habitat.

Because of you, our $100K Challenge has been met - and exceeded! We experienced first-hand the synergy of giving—one person's gift inspires another, and another, and another. Before we know it, the goal is achieved. It is both awe-inspiring and humbling. We sincerely appreciate the generosity of so many new and sustaining members!
