A 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation serving Colorado's Sugarloaf community.
To reduce wildfire risk for as many Sugarloaf homes as possible by organizing local volunteers to create fuel breaks at strategically chosen sites in the neighborhoods that face the greatest wildfire threat.  
C'mon out and participate in SAWS fuel reduction events!  You'll meet neighbors, get exercise, be well fed, feel great about your contribution to the community, and have a great time.  Please  see our Volunteer Info page to learn more.
Within Sugarloaf neighborhoods that have wildfire risk ratings of Very High or Extreme (per the Sugarloaf Community Wildfire Protection Plan --  CWPP) we strategically select potential project sites which, if sufficiently mitigated, would reduce wildfire risk to neighborhoods, subdivisions, or clusters of homes.  We then contact the owner of each target parcel and offer to organize and significantly subsidize a fuel reduction event to be held on a Saturday or Sunday using the award-winning, camaraderie-building "Saws and Slaws" (chainsaws and coleslaws) mitigation model that involves four hours of tree felling, slash piling, and firewood stacking by Sugarloaf volunteers followed by a potluck picnic.  Slash chipping and a small amount of technical tree work (if needed) are conducted by a contractor the following week.
Note:  All dates and project locations are tentative, so be sure to check back here often, especially before heading out.  We might also add events.
