The Hayman fire in 2002 was the largest wildland fire in Colorado history, burning 135,000 acres and destroying 130 homes. Now, a group is taking the devastation and turning it into a fund-raiser.
The Coalition for the Upper South Platte (CUSP) is a non-profit group. It's getting help from volunteers from several states to turn Aspen trees destroyed by the Hayman fire into coasters. The money will help raise wildland fire awareness and continue restoration efforts in the Hayman burn area.
If you are interested in purchasing coasters, you can call CUSP at (719) 748-0033.
