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.

Vision Statement: Our Vision is to establish the greater Houston area as the best large urban city for off-road cycling.
GHORBA builds, maintains, and helps open new, sustainable, multi-use natural surface trails in the greater Houston area.
Trails are developed in partnership with federal, state, and local government authorities utilizing volunteer labor. GHORBA developed trails are available to all non-motorized vehicles and users, including walkers, runners, hikers, and naturalists.
We partner with environmental groups and share a common goal of the preservation of natural habitat environments.
GHORBA's educational programs include the Houston Sprockids program, a community outreach program to teach mountain biking skills to underprivileged kids in the Houston area as a fun way to involve them in a healthy outdoor activity while teaching them values that will guide them through life. We also have free mountain biking skills clinics for our members and their families.

I taught the mountain bike skills clinic and sit on the board so I am a bit biased. GHORBA is just as conservation-minded as other natural trail users, sometimes doing even more to open up new ones and fix existing ones.
