Breitenbush needs your help!
We’ve had devastating losses due to the wildfires and need your help rebuilding.
The Beachie Creek and Lionshead fires ripped through Breitenbush and burned nearly half of the structures to the ground. All guest cabins, Sanctuary, Vista (massage house), the foot bridge, Well House 4, the maintenance bay and wood shop, and several community cabins are completely destroyed.
Fortunately all of our staff evacuated safely, and we have a small, brave team from the Breitenbush Fire Department on site continuing to defend the lodge and other remaining structures from fire. All of our efforts are focused on protecting what is left of our beloved home in the forest.
This evacuation and loss of property combined with a 4-month closure due to COVID-19 has put tremendous financial strain on the coop. Insurance will cover only a portion of the cost to rebuild and it will take months of cleanup, repairs and construction to reopen safely.
Your contribution will go directly to reconstruction efforts. The sooner we can rebuild and rehire our staff, the sooner we can reopen to the public. Any gift is appreciated and will make a difference.
