The Story

Rancho Mariposa and Moon Dance Ranch were hit hard by wildfire on October 9th, 2017.  Hundreds of acres of wilderness went up in flames and all of our buildings were burnt to the ground. Our ranch has always been built on a set of values and ideas, and it is the perseverance of those values for which we are raising money.  We believe in being stewards of the forest.  Just last summer we had hosted the 360+ Leadership Collective in which youth from around the country learned about Climate Change.  We feel strongly that Climate Change played a role in the loss of our homes, and that is why we are starting the Mariposa Rural Resilience Ranch. Beyond rebuilding our homes, we want to create an example of how rural areas can be built in ways that are resilient to natural disasters, energy efficient, mindful of the environment, and connected to the global community.  After the fire, we have a clean slate - we have a chance to foster healthy and fire resistant growth.  We will need money for tools and materials for forestry management and ecological building. Our dream is to see this land regrow as a monument to the beauty of nature and the importance of humankind's connection to it.

Thank you everyone!  The support is overwhelming.  We spent the first chunk of this money registering a non-profit. If the name is available, we will be board members of The Resilience and Regeneration Collective. 

The Resilience and Regeneration Collective will facilitate education and research on how to develop communities and wildlife areas that are resilient to natural disasters fueled by Climate Change, are energy efficient, productive yet mindful of the environment, and connected to the global community.
