The Yuba Watershed Institute (YWI) has organized a workday to help save large legacy trees from wildfire. The trees are located in the ‘Inimim Forest, the community forest of the San Juan Ridge.
One of the YWI’s goals is to preserve and restore a component of old forest habitat in our watershed. The ‘Inimim Forest has remnant stands of very large trees, and we will be clearing small vegetation from their drip lines.
The workday is scheduled for Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 9 am to 3 pm. Meet at the North Columbia Schoolhouse (17894 Tyler Foote Crossing Rd, Nevada City, CA 95959) to carpool to the worksite.
Bring work gloves, clippers, handsaws, water and some snacks. A picnic will follow the workday.
Forest ecologist Dr. Jo Ann Fites-Kaufman will explain what she has been discovering on the ‘Inimim Forest during recent surveys conducted as part of an update to the Bureau of Land Management’s management plan for this area.
