There are 3 objectives that this project will accomplish. First, students will study the historical distribution of oaks using aerial photographs and design a plan to restore oak habitat. Second, students will plant seedlings in restoration sites while experimenting with different planting strategies and various factors that affect the growth and health of oaks. Lastly, students will communicate their findings to fellow students at both high schools to exhibit the value of oaks and natural lands to Napa County.
These are photos taken from Stone Bridge School’s 5th grade acorn collection trip to Suscol Vineyards in October.
