CONSERVATION PROJECT (Nov. 12th, 2008)
The USFS would like our help to complete a stream restoration project on a tributary to the Silver Fork of the American River. The heavy equipment work has been done and all that remains is to replant the area to prevent erosion and provide habitat for the fish and other aquatic species.
We will meet at 9:30 AM at the fire station in Kyburz . The fire station is on the left side of Highway 50, just east of the Kyburz Store & gas station. We will caravan/carpool from there to the work site. With a sufficient number of people, we should be done early afternoon.
Wear durable but comfortable work clothes, sturdy boots or shoes, a jacket and hat. Bring lunch and snacks, gardening gloves, garden tools such as a shovel and hand trowel (or an old spoon for digging in the soil), and a 2-gallon watering can if you have one.
Please sign up by contacting Barbara Bania at if you wish to assist with this project.
