Volunteers Needed for Aspen Regeneration in Loney Meadow!

Event Date/Time

Jun 21, 2014 to Aug 30, 2014
8:00 am

This event occurs weekly on Saturday.

Description

8 am to 4 pm on Saturdays June 21st, July 12th & July 26th, August 16th & 30th

Aspen groves are in extreme decline from conifer encroachment due to changes in natural fire and hydrology regimes. But you can help! Come out with us to learn about and help restore aspen tree habitat, one of the Sierra Nevada’s biodiversity hotspots.

The restoration days will include carpooling to Loney Meadow, learning about the importance of aspen groves and meadows, and a few hours of conifer removal.  Training and natural interpretation will be provided by Kathy Van Zuuk of Tahoe National Forest.  Aspen regeneration is a priority action that supports broader efforts to restore the health of mountain meadows in the Yuba Watershed, which are important natural sources of clean water for the Yuba River.

Our next work date is next Saturday, June 21st and we need volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Adele to RSVP with the date that you would like to come volunteer. You can reach Adele by email, adele@syrcl.org, or by phone, (530) 265-5961 ext.218. Two weekends ago, we kicked off our first aspen regeneration work day of the season, and it was a great success. Thank you to the 11 volunteers that worked hard to help save our aspen.
