Community effort to restore Irvine’s burned open space

The nonprofit Irvine Ranch Conservancy is seeking donations to help restore land damaged by the recent Silverado fire.

Donations will repair damaged facilities like IRC’s Native Seed Farm, which grows seeds and plants for the land.

The Silverado fire burned more than 13,500 acres of open space in October. The IRC asks people to avoid all burned areas, as walking on it damages the land, making recovery more challenging.

To help, make tax-deductible donations to IRC’s Wildfire Recovery Fund by texting “IRC” to 56512, or visit Learn more about recovery efforts by following @IRLandmarks on social media.
