Update: Today, August 14, 2012, the Napa County Board of Supervisors has approved the grant for this project!

“Acorns to Oaks: Partnerships for Restoring Native Oak Populations in the Napa Valley”

Wednesday, July 11, 2012, 1:00 p.m., at the FONR office.

FONR partners with the Napa County Resource Conservation District and USDA NRCS. The objective of the Acorns to Oaks project is threefold: to improve the wildlife habitat and ecological function of the Napa Valley by planting more oaks; to educate the public about the plight and the importance of our oak trees; and to give kids hands-on learning time and the
opportunity to make lasting connections with nature through planting trees.

Shari Gardner will present the plans and answer your question how to participate and support this effort.

The FONR Executive Committee.

  1. We hope that Acorn to Oaks can become a Valley-wide and County-wide effort with folks from all spectrums, neighborhoods, and communities participating. Just think about the old adage of planting a tree under which you will never sit….

  2. Thank you FONR for hosting this event. I just walked in the Oxbow Preserve and was excited to see some new oak trees. I was also enchanted by a grove of trees along the path. Do you know what kind of trees are in that grove? Are they native to California. They look as if they have been there for many years.

    1. Hi Molly, thanks for sharing your excitement! I am asking some of our tree experts to answer your question about the trees in the grove which were preserved when the park was created. (Bernhard.)
