Bowie Fire Restoration Volunteer Week
Thursday, August 17 – Thursday, August 24, 2017
On Wednesday, June 07th at 3 PM a wildfire caused by lightning broke out on a mountain near Diamond Mountain. Our calls to emergency services quickly led to a team of on-site professionals who helped us to manage the safety of our guests and staff who were all evacuated from the Retreat Valley. Wildfire-fighters from all over the Southwest worked quickly to extinguish the fire within 24 hours. Despite the quick response, part of our water system was damaged and a few houses received cosmetic damage. For more details, visit our Facebook posts from June 9, June 10, June 11 & June 13
Join us Thursday, August 17 – Thursday, August 24 for the “Bowie Fire Restoration Volunteer Week”.
Come for the weekend or stay the entire week.
We’ll replace part of our water system and rehabilitate cottages 25, 26 & 27. There is no fee for this program. Accommodations and food will be provided to all volunteers.
