Folks planting oaks...


On Sunday, Feb. 24, Cavedale Road resident Berta Acker (at left), from the Mayacamas Fire Safe Council (MFSC), helped hand out native oak seedlings to more than 20 area residents who signed up to receive the donated seedlings from ReOak CA. The MFSC, a community action committee formed to enhance fire safety in the Mayacamas Fire district, organized the planting project to help replace some of the trees lost in the October 2017 Nuns fire. One of the objectives of the council is to help evolve the mix of trees in the area towards more fire resistant oaks rather than bays and pines. In the past 70 years more than a million acres of oak habitat has been lost to development, disease and habitat decimation in California. ReOak CA is a project of the California Native Plant Society who, following the 2017 wildfires, launched ReOak Wine Country. Volunteers gathered hundreds of acorns in the wine country area and these were grown into seedlings over the past year. Five hundred of these seedlings made their way back home to the Mayacamas Fire District and were handed out to residents over the weekend of Feb. 23 and 24. Photo by Lisa Warner
