THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
Thank you to the hardworking RFFI Volunteers who came out to the Usal Redwood Forest this spring to help with the French Broom Pull on May 20 and the Sudden Oak Death Blitz on June 11!
The time you spent in the forest made a meaningful difference.
You cleared an important area of French Broom at the main entrance at the WRP Road, RFFI’s main access through the property. By pulling established plants before they set seed pods, you eliminated Broom from the area and stopped millions of invasive seeds from being transported throughout the forest by vehicle tires.
You collected leaves from California Bay Laurels at three different sites on RFFI for testing to find out if Sudden Oak Death is present there, and to help UC Berkeley track the spread of this devastating pathogen in our region.
You put the Community in Community Forestry. Thank you!
