Help us with a reforestation project to plant 4,000 tree seedlings at the Sierra Friends Center campus

On August 20, 2020, the lightning-started Jones Fire raged across Woolman’s campus and decimated the forest at Mel’s Pond. Quickly, a tree salvage operation occurred to recover the marketable timber, but it left a burn scar of about 75 acres on this hillside. A deep layer of mulch has covered this site for a year, helping build the health of the forest floor. Help us restore this burned to its majestic state once again.

Our goal is to plant 4,000 seedlings within 10 days: Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pine, Giant Sequoia in a patchwork of small groves.

Event Details:

When: Dec, 11-12 (Sat-Sun) Community Volunteers, 10 am – 4 pm.

Tree planting days will be led by forest science and land management experts. We will learn from them about fire ecology in our region and silviculture reforestation methods.

  • Sierra Streams Institute
  • Bear Yuba Land Trust
  • Under the Trees: Kevin Whitlock
  • Forest Silviculturist: Kristen Winford

No experience necessary. Must be able to walk on uneven ground and dig small holes with a spade for seedlings.

Out-of-Town Volunteers:

  • Overnight accommodations in A-Frame cabins are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

For more information please see the event here or on Woolman’s website.
