Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Our mission is to promote sustainable community that fosters life-giving relationships, nurtures connections, and celebrates solutions for restoring and healing Earth's communities.
We do this through a variety of strategies including:
Educating the community on innovative solutions.
Offering a systemic framework, i.e. a way of "connecting the dots" that is holistic, systemic, and multi-disciplinary.
Linking individuals and networks in order to foster connection, cross-pollination, and collaboration of people and ideas, all focused on positive change.
Advocating for opportunities to restore our damaged and depleted community.
Being an oasis of hope that sparks mass creativity and engagement.
Bioneers is a 'Revolution from the heart of Nature". Founded in 1990 by Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simons, Bioneers promotes practical environmental solutions and innovative social strategies for restoring Earth's imperiled ecosystems and healing our human communities.
