The Yuba Watershed Institute’s Save the Big Trees Work Day will take place on November 7, 2015 in and adjacent to a McNab Cypress forest, an area of unique geology, botany, and natural history. We will be reducing fuels and protecting the unique forest of the Bald Mountain Parcel of the San Juan Ridge ‘Inimim Forest. Several unique plant species are found here, including the Brewer’s oak, birchleaf mountain mahogany, silk tassel, creeping sage, and McNab cypress. The rare butterfly, Muir’s Hairstreak, feeds on McNab cypress in the Sierra Nevada. The coast horned lizard and California thrasher have also been observed on Bald Mountain.
Bring water, snacks, work gloves, loppers, a rake, and earplugs.
We will be removing and stacking manzanita.
A chipper will be present to process the materials.
