RFFI.ORG thanks these philanthropic young musicians from Palo Alto High. Last month in response to the siege of devastating wildfires, they donated their tips to plant redwoods through RFFI.ORG Plant a Redwood Now Program! “We're students at Palo Alto High School and our band raised these funds playing music outside in downtown Palo Alto. Great time to plant more redwood trees to protect our forests and the planet.” They played as smoke and ash from CZU Complex filled the air, drifting over from the fire in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Pictured here from l to r Owen Rice on bass (Junior) Phela Durosinmi (Soph) on guitar, Wesley Perlman (Soph) on drums and Reed Schulman (Soph) on guitar.

Welcome RFFI.ORG newest Plant a Redwood Now! business partner Daniel Taylor. Daniel plants trees for every business transaction that MP Fine Art Printing fulfills. As we all reeled from the impact of the tragic fires raging through redwood forests, Daniel reached across the Atlantic and donated to have 5 redwoods planted in a California redwood forest in honor of Planet Earth. MP Fine Art Printing in Oxford, England will plant trees to help Planet Earth for every exhibition, original artwork reproduction, bespoke frame or print run they produce.

2020 wildfires killing already endangered fish. In Oregon, about 450,000 fish perished at two hatcheries. Nearly 1.2 million chinook, steelhead and trout were released into the McKenzie River all at once in desperation as the fire approached and fresh water to the facility was cut off. A hatchery building near the Oregon-California border burned and staff at one facility went ahead with a critical breeding period while running on limited power from a back-up generator. https://bit.ly/2ZNMQMg#Chinook#Coho#browntrout#Salmonidrecovery#Salmon#OregonWildfires2020#wildfires
