AFTA volunteers from Redding, CA have reclaimed materials from fire site locations devastated by the Carr Fire including several private residences and the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. Our relief effort will include process workshops, community programming, public art and will culminate in a benefit art exhibition in Redding in the fall of 2019. Proceeds from Seeds of Regrowth programming will benefit Friends of Whiskeytown’s “Trees, Bridges and Trees” initiatives for Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. AFTA will work with regional artists and the greater community of Shasta County to support our philanthropic partners.

The Carr Fire began on July 23, raging through Shasta County claiming the lives of 8 people including 3 firefighters, destroying 229,651 acres and 1,605 structures (at least 1,079 private residences) before its containment on August 30. To date, it is one of the largest and most destructive wildfires in California’s history.
