PARADISE, Calif. - On this anniversary of the Camp Fire, people in Paradise are working together to restore the Ridge, this weekend they are doing a tree giveaway for people who live in the burn scar. 

"Camp Fire Restoration Project was founded by Matthew Trumm after the fire and it was a community measure to heal our ecosystem and our people community," said Janeva Sorenson the Project Manager.

Janeva Sorenson is the project manager, and says people who live in any burn scar around Butte County could sign up to get trees and learn about the ecosystem. 

"It's providing opprtunities for people to come together, work on the land, help restore the land, and have healing collectivley through that. Yeah we are putting on eductation and demonstration and resources for people to participate," said Sorenson.

"I feel like a pioneer coming back to Paradise because this is home to me. So it is important to see all of my friends and neighbors here doing the same thing because trees are super important to all of us," said Sandy Miller a Camp Fire survivor.

Sandy Miller lost her home in the fire, but bought a new piece of property in Paradise. 

"It did lose quite a bit, it is a half acre that I purchased, I am excited about having my own home and working my land," said Miller.

Both of the women say the restoration is important for healing mentally.

"I think that something that really makes this community strong is the connection to this place and teh grit and desire to be in Paradise and Butte County and seeing this as an opprtunity to bring everyone together," said Sorenson. 

"It is a big weekend for all of us and this is healing this is not concentrating on what happened. It is what we can do to grow from it," said Miller. 

The giveaway will continue through Monday, November 9th, 2020. 

You can only go to pick-up trees if you are signed up ahead of time, and the list is full.
