SYRCL Aspen Volunteer Work Day 2023
July 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
One event on July 15, 2023 at 10:00 am
The South Yuba River Citizens League has been involved in aspen restoration for over 6 years now, with a Yuba River watershed-wide aspen assessment completed last year. To involve our community with the work we do, we are hosting an Aspen Volunteer Day on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15 at 10 am at Loney Meadow.
Register for one or both of the days to join SYRCL’s Forest Conservation Project Manager, Anne Marie Holt, to help install cattle exclusion fencing for the summer. The meadow should be beautiful this time of year – a spectacular sight you don’t want to miss!
Although aspen communities comprise only a small fraction of Sierra Nevada forests, they provide an outsized role in biodiversity, similar to riparian areas. In addition to habitat, aspen stands provide ecosystem services that affect surrounding ecological communities both directly and indirectly including landscape-scale fire resilience, and improved water quality.
