Nominate a Santiam Canyon hero

In the wake of the wildfires of 2020, emerging from the ashes came an army of magic makers who selflessly gave their time, hearts, money and muscle to those who needed it the most.

Santiam Canyon Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG) seeking the rock stars and businesses who have moved mountains to help others spiritually, physically, mentally, financially and emotionally.

Help us honor them by sharing their stories. These stories will be shared publicly on social media and published on a special page of the Santiam Recovery website dedicated to these heroes.

Each nominee will receive a certificate and an electronic copy of the badge for them to be able to publish on their own social media channels.

Nominations are now live at

The mission of the Santiam Canyon LTRG is to support the recovery efforts of residents, property owners, organizations, and businesses affected by the Lionshead and Beachie Creek Wildfires in the Santiam Canyon region of Marion County and Linn County.
