In the evening of September 9, 2021, a lightning storm came through Sequoia National Park. Fire erupted and national park firefighters responded to local ignitions. By September 14, there was a mandatory evacuation of Ash Mountain, Lodgepole, Wuksachi Lodge, and Three Rivers, CA. Donations to the KNP Complex Fire Recovery Fund for Sequoia National Park will fund efforts to rebuild trails, protect sequoia groves and meadows, safeguard cultural and historic features, reestablish access to Crystal Cave, restore wildlife habitat, and more.
