VOLUNTEER FOR COMMUNITY TREE PLANTING

Help with the reforestation of Jones Fire burn at the Woolman Sierra Friends Center campus!

On August 20, 2020, the lightning-started Jones Fire raged across Woolman’s campus and decimated the forest at Mel’s Pond. Quickly, a tree salvage operation occurred to recover the marketable timber, but it left a burn scar of about 75 acres on this hillside. A deep layer of mulch has covered this site for a year, helping build the health of the forest floor. Help us restore this burned forest to its majestic state once again.


4,000 seedlings of Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pine, Giant Sequoia

Tree planting days will be led by forest science and land management experts. We will learn from them about fire ecology in our region and silviculture reforestation methods.
