Last Chance for Participation in CFIP Funded Ponderosa Pine Project

With much help from Jill Butler of CalFire, we are putting together a proposal to the California Forest Improvement Program to fund a pilot project addressing the Western Pine Beetle infestation of our local Ponderosa Pines, due April 1. While we anticipate follow on projects with CFIP next year, the funding is contingent on the fraught State budget debate. To participate this year, please contact board members Nadia Hamey 431-0288, or Val Haley 425-0687.

Branches Falling as Burn Season is Coming to a Close

Dry weather is rumored to be returning as March turns to April, so we have a last chance to collect and dispose of dead wood debris before it becomes fuel this summer.
