At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It has been a long, hot, difficult summer. From floods to fires, entire communities, livelihoods, and ecosystems have been destroyed. Every day, our thoughts are with all those affected. The rains continue to fall and fires continue to rage, but those not directly under siege are wondering: what’s next? What can I do to help?

We are putting together this list of resources so we can all come together and rebuild — but we need your help. Please comment below with any resources for rebuilding trails affected by wildfires across the US. Because, as the Outdoor Industry Association is known for saying: alone we’re strong, but together we’re a force.

We’re going to start with resources we know of close to our home in Portland, OR. Again, if you know of other resources, please comment with a link so we can add it to this post.

Trailkeepers of Oregon focuses on trails across the state, which means trails affected by any one of the many fires we’ve seen so far. Sign up with Trailkeepers of Oregon here.

Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
