A collaborative effort to help landowners restore oak woodland habitat

We are embarking upon a multi-year effort to help Lake & Mendocino Counties restore our oak woodlands after the Mendocino Lake Complex fires in fall of 2017. 

Our efforts include: 

  • Acorn collection to preserve local genetic diversity
  • Support to help landowners with:
    • Site evaluation to develop recovery and management strategies
    • Replanting of oaks in burned areas
    • Conservation of surviving oaks
  • Volunteer engagement in land stewardship
  • Education about best practices for oak woodland recovery

HOW IT WORKS: 
If you are a landowner whose land suffered in the fire, please fill out this information. We will contact you to let you know if we can arrange a site visit to assess how we can best help you.

Our program is entirely volunteer-run at the moment, so we can not guarantee support, though we will do our best. We are actively fundraising to be able to help more landowners.

Thank you for your interest in oak woodland restoration, and for your  patience while we get this program off of the ground!
