Join us for the Dinkey Collaborative Public Field Trip!
Interact, learn and share with the Dinkey Collaborative at their first public field trip. This event will showcase how community members and the U.S. Forest Service are working together to restore and maintain the health of public lands and ecosystems within the Dinkey Creek area. We will visit areas that have recently had forest thinning treatments and other areas awaiting such treatments. Learn how YOU can be a part of this exciting opportunity to impact forest health, promote clean water/air and prevent uncharacteristic wildfire in the Sierra National Forest and neighboring communities.
To RSVP, please fill out this online form:
or call the Sierra National Forest at 559-855-5355 ext. 0.
The Dinkey Landscape Restoration Project is a science-based, ecological restoration initiative covering 154,000 acres in the southern Sierra Nevada of California. Climbing from 1,000 to over 10,000 feet in elevation, the mountainous landscape weaves coniferous and hardwood forests together with meadows, lakes, rivers, and riparian forests. This area is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including sensitive species like Lahontan cutthroat trout, Pacific fisher, Yosemite toad and Sierra yellow-legged frog. Much of the project area has experienced a lack of regular fire that historically shaped the vegetation, resulting in altered forest composition and higher fuel loadings. Every year, four communities of approximately 5,000 homes risk uncharacteristic wildfire.
