A Message From the Las Virgenes Homeowners Federation

"Friends of the Santa Monica Mountains: 

As you all know, the Woolsey fire has been catastrophic -- devastating for the wildlife that called the Santa Monica Mountains home and the loss of the habitat they need to survive.

Many of you have asked how you can immediately help the displaced, injured, and fragile wildlife that remains, and also how you can best help with the restoration of their habitat.

The National Park Service reports now that more than 88% of their parkland has been destroyed. This is heartbreaking beyond belief - and so many of you everywhere have played such a long and passionate role in preserving these open spaces so that our magnificent mountain lions, bobcats, raptors, and other wonderful wild things can thrive and survive. Sadly, this is the fire we all feared and hoped against hope that would never, ever emerge. But, it did.

So, here is our recommendation. We are focused on wildlife and habitat recovery. If you want to help make a difference now in specifically rescuing, saving and helping wildlife and/or re-establishing their habitat - you can make a DIRECT donation to the National Park Service - to the very people who have been here for 40 years doing just that and who are in charge of recovery efforts. If anyone can succeed in this effort, they can. Also, 100% of donations then go directly to saving wildlife and/or re-establishing their habitat.

Here's How To Donate:

Make Checks Payable to: The National Park Service
(Write on your checks or on accompanying letter - For Woolsey Fire - Wildlife Recovery and/or Habitat Restoration)

Mail Your Checks to:
David Szymanski, Superintendent
The National Park Service
Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
401 West Hillcrest Drive
Thousand Oaks, CA 91360

Thank you!
