On Thursday, June 23rd I went back to Coronado National Memorial to retrieve all of the gear and other items we had to leave behind due to the wildfire evacuation. Nearly 100 percent of the park burned, but thanks to our maintenance and the NPS sprinkler system, the structures still stand. The landscape that was once filled with seas of Lehmanns lovegrass, Mesquite, Manzanita, Oak and Juniper is now charred, black and barren. Collectively, we all have a very special connection with Coronado, and it is troublesome to our minds to know that it is in stress. We are hoping to help in restoration and re-vegetation efforts later on in the season. Bring Coronado back to life!
