Are you up to the Scotch Broom Challenge?
Do you want to become an active steward of our Sierra foothills landscape? Want to get your hands dirty contributing to a healthy forest in your “backyard”? Then come join the Yuba Watershed Institute (YWI) for some upcoming opportunities to “tend the wild” in the ‘Inimim Forest, your local community forest stewardship project.
This season, the YWI is partnering with the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County, and other local groups, to undertake the Scotch Broom Challenge, an annual effort to reduce the impacts of this invasive plant.
Dates: Saturday, March 4 and Saturday, April 8
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (snacks provided)
North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center (parking lot)
17894 Tyler Foote Road
Nevada City, CA 95959
We will be meeting in the Schoolhouse parking lot at 9 am for registration and a brief orientation to the work day. Then we will carpool to a nearby work site in the ‘Inimim Forest to pull Scotch broom.
To join this event, please RSVP to Chris Friedel at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (530) 955-1822.
