Do you remember the ubiquitous haze during Burning Man 2013? Also, the eerie and extraordinary red sunrises and looming flaming moons at night? As we now know, those photogenic phenomena were a direct result of one of the worst wildfires in California's history. It began at nearby Jawbone Ridge in the Stanislaus National Forest and spread to Yosemite National Park. Now called the 2013 Rim Fire, it burned 254,685 acres, or 400 square miles, of our protected woodlands. The Temple 2013 for Trees has reached our original goal of raising $5,000 in order to replenish more than DOUBLE the wood we used to construct the Temple of Whollyness in partnership with Green Forests Work. Since the Rim Fire devastation, our new goal is to raise $10,000 by September 30th (today – only $1,600 more to go) so that we may also donate $5,000 to the National Forest Foundation to aid with the Rim Fire restoration efforts. Please consider a donation to benefit our neighboring Black Rock Desert forest lands.
Plant a tree and replenish wood burned on the playa and at the Stanislaus/Yosemite Rim Fire. Final call-out, LAST day: http://igg.me/at/temple2013/x/343107
Wholly yours, The Temple 2013
