About berry creek
Berry Creek is a rural community located in the foothills east of Oroville. A unique, tight-knit, and private community of about 2,000 people, it is well known for it's natural beauty and of course, the world famous Blackberries. Residents enjoy the peace, quiet, and privacy of a mountain community tucked into the bush lined creeks within the forest. Life without a single traffic light makes you forget about your worries and the hustle and bustle that city life brings.
The north complex fire
On September 8th around 3pm residents were given an immediate evacuation order. No warnings like every other time the community had to evacuate. The power was shut off and many residents were unaware of the severity of the fire which had been burning since August 17th. By midnight approximately 79% of the town was leveled. Sadly, 16 people perished in Berry Creek and surrounding areas. The aftermath left an entire town displaced and many had no insurance.
IT'S UP TO US to
Berry Creek United was established in September of 2020 by 4 locals to help our fellow creekers out. We are constantly striving to grow and gain more donors to our monumental cause. Our priorities not only include restoring life to the residents but also their pets, the local wildlife, and the overall environment. We hope to eventually help build eco sustainable homes, a community center, a native history center, a local crafts store and to restore our town greater than anyone thought possible.
