Join us for another unique fall tour of the recently conserved Sardine Creek property owned by Clem Stockard and Bonnie Brown. Home to oak woodlands, mixed evergreen forest, chaparral, and riparian areas, this 47-acre property features a wide diversity of wildlife and plants. Clem and Bonnie have both spent many years in forestry-related work, ranging from thinning trees to wildlife surveys. In 1992 the East Evans Creek Fire burned through 40 acres of their property. In 1997 & 2002 their riparian areas experienced severe damage from flooding. Their experience and dedication has helped them steward this beautiful parcel for more than 40 years.
Tour topics include restoration forestry, oak restoration, fire and flood. Stories about wildlife encounters big and small are sure to be had. This will be a walking tour of about 1.5 miles, with some ups and downs, on a well-developed trail system.
