TUCSON (KVOA) - A non-profit partner of the U.S. Forest Service is accepting donations for the post-fire recovery efforts in areas impacted by the BigHorn fire.
According to the National Forest Foundation, the funds will be used for the restoration and rehabilitation of trails as well as access to affected areas. It will also be used for wildfire education programs.
The money will go to the Southern Arizona Forest Fund.
The National Forest Foundation is also teaming up with Visit Tucson for youth and public education programs.
The NFF said it created this opportunity for individuals and businesses to give back to the public lands recovery efforts on the Coronado National Forest after the BigHorn fire. The non-profit also said it will be donating some of the money to local partner organizations.
"The Santa Catalina Mountains near Tucson are special places for so many people, and we want to create a way for individuals and businesses to contribute to efforts to reopen the 100 miles of trails that are still closed due to the Bighorn Fire," said Rebecca Davidson, Southwest Director of the National Forest Foundation.
