   Kirkwood Environmental EffortsKIRKWOOD AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Over 350 Kirkwood & Heavenly employees and their families came out to rehabilitate the area affected by the Angora fire in 2007. The team tackled two different projects working with two distinct local nonprofits, The Sugar Pine Foundation and Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association

  Over one thousand hours were spent planting 1,000 native Sugar Pines into areas still recovering from the fire; and repairing a 1.2 mile section of a popular mountain bike trail.
