Fire Recovery and Replanting: Information and Free Resources for Landowners Presentation with Laguna Foundation and Partners
Did the fires directly impact your property or do you live in the wildland urban interface and want to incorporate native, resilient plants into your landscapes? Do you need help with erosion control and assessment? Are you not sure how to assess whether your burned oaks will survive or not? Join us to find out what resources are available to you. The Laguna Foundation is teaming up with Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, the Sonoma Resource Conservation Districtand the Milo Baker Chapter-California Native Plant Society to restore and replant native plants in areas impacted by the October 2017 fires. This presentation will include an overview about the fire’s impacts in the Laguna de Santa Rosa Watershed and the region, and will provide information about soil erosion, native plants, and water quality.
While the information and resources are meant especially for landowners impacted by the October fires, the general public is welcome to attend (pre-registration—RSVP—is required so we know how many people will attend and because seats are limited). Whether your land is a tenth of an acre or 100 acres, the native plants on your property provide wildlife habitat, prevent erosion, and improve water quality. We are growing a variety of native trees and shrubs with seeds collected locally to share with landowners next fall. Attend this presentation to learn more and to sign up for the free resources.
Speakers will include Dr. Wendy Trowbridge, Director of Restoration and Conservation Science Programs at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, as well as the Foundation’s Ecological Program Manager, Brent Reed.
