When the Thomas Fire struck Meher Mount on December 4, 2017, it cleaned up flammable trash hidden away in the underbrush.
It also revealed other non-flammable, previously hidden trash. There are pieces of metal - ranging from old fence wire to unused pipes - seemingly strewn around the property near the Visitor Center and the Topa Topa Patio.
The Thomas Fire has given Meher Mount a timely opportunity to clean up this debris - some of it dating back to 1985 The New Life Fire and before. In addition, there are a couple of other tasks related to the fire needing volunteer help: thoroughly scrubbing two refrigerators and tilling the soil under the Coast Live Oak near the entryway to aid its long-term health.
