Donate to the Museum

We are a small 501(c) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the original Siskiyou Smokejumper Base buildings and educating the public about this elite sect of wildland firefighting. Our work is kept alive by donations and our awesome volunteers.

Thanks for being a part of our story, and stay safe out there in the wilderness!
