With 95% of Bastrop State Park burned, nearly all of its outdoor opportunities are gone for now. However, local groups are joining together to help renew the park, also known as the Heart of the Lost Pines because it features a unique variety of Loblolly Pine, representing the western end of the pine forest stretching across the southern United States.
One of the volunteer groups is the Friends of the Lost Pines, which organized a special to ensure 100% of charitable contributions will be used to help restoration.
They released a video showing the aftermath of this historic fire.
