The Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center and global relief group Burners Without Borders, with the Mount Shasta Vet’s Club and other business supporters and individual donors, held “WeedAid” on November 22 to benefit the town of Weed’s recovery from effects of the September 16 Boles Fire.

Performers including Shasta Taiko, Human with Jeff Pevar and Anton Mizerak, and Marin native Jerry Hannan entertained, alternating with panels and forums on recovery and rebuilding. Panel videos of these active discussions are on the event website here with additional information on sustainable rebuilding techniques and other resources to benefit recovery.

We thank all our sponsors, volunteers and those who attended for joining us to honor the resilience of Weed citizens and through this gathering and dialogue, provide hope for the future.
