Lend a Hand to Colorado Wildfire Victims

430,000 acres. That’s the total number of acres burned so far in Colorado, in what’s become the state's worst wildfire season on record. Typically October signals the end of the state’s fire season, but the prevailing lack of participation hasn’t helped.

Colorado fire crews scrambled this past weekend to contain two blazes exacerbated by the dry conditions and relentless gusts of wind. The Cameron Peak Fire, burning over 200,000 acres, is now the largest wildfire in the state’s history. Thousands of Coloradans have evacuated, with many currently homeless from the blazes. We’ve compiled a list of resources to make it easy to lend a hand.

Here’s What it’s Like to be Caught in a Bison Stampede

No, thank you. This video is a great reminder of how I never want to be caught in a bison stampede. It is unknown what caused this tsunami wave of fuzzy Prius-sized mammals to charge through the Yellowstone National Park traffic. My guess is that a middle-aged woman with an iPad spooked them while trying to get photos for family back home. Damn it, Karen, why can’t you just stay on the boardwalk?! Jokes aside, we’re glad that no one was hurt from this uncomfortably close wildlife

Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters

If we want to protect the places we love—our mountains, forests, deserts, or oceans—it starts by voting. Sounds simple, right? However, our track record isn’t too great: Thirty-five percent of 18-29-year-olds, who said they “definitely voted” in the 2014 midterm election, in fact, didn't actually vote. Yikes. We can do better this November and Protect Our Winters wants to make the process as easy as possible. RELATED: Make a Plan to Vote with Protect Our Winters Protect Our Winters’ Make A
