CANCELED: Fire Restoration tour of Native Oaks Ridge
November 21, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST
The Native Oaks Ridge Conservation Easement protects 326 acres. The property is approximately a mile from the Cerro Gordo Conservation Easement, building a network of natural areas, providing a corridor for plants and animals to move throughout the Row River region.
Open-grown Oregon white oaks within the easement are threatened by conifer encroachment, while the under-story and prairie has been heavily invaded by exotic woody vegetation and non-native grasses.
Join us to learn how the Coast Fork Watershed Council and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are implementing multiple restoration techniques, including fire, to restore the oak and prairie habitats. The trail is steep in areas, and is moderately difficult. We will be walking approximately 2 miles.
