Presidio Response to North Bay Fires: Park Closures and Ways to Help

Thursday, Oct 12, 2017 Category Park Management

Updated October 17, 1:30 pm

We're deeply saddened about the loss and suffering in our community as a result of the North Bay fires. Though we cancelled outdoor events last weekend, we have no upcoming cancellations at this time as we continue to monitor the air quality. We've also compiled and continued to update a list of Presidio organizations who are offering help and support.​ Please see below for details.

Cancellations due to Poor Air Quality

There are no cancellations at this time. We'll update this page as new information becomes available. Please visit the Bay Air Quality Management District website for updates and advisories about changing conditions.

Presidio Organizations Offering Support to Fire Survivors

Planet Granite
Planet Granite is accepting donations to support evacuation centers in the North Bay. Bring items like water, food, clothing, and household essentials to Planet Granite. They'll be distributing them nightly. To confirm they're still accepting donations, call 415-692-3434. ​​

Sports Basement
Sports Basement is now encouraging cash donations to shelters and charitable agencies as well as gift cards. To that end, they're offering their North Bay customers 25% off everything in their Santa Rosa store so that they can purchase essential supplies such as sleeping bags, flashlights, tents, shoes, socks and clothing. If you'd like to support that effort, you can purchase Gift Cards on their website or in any of their stores. They'll make certain the cards get to those in need in the North Bay. ​​
