Caples Creek Headwaters Conservation

Come out and prepare for a critically needed prescribed burn within the Caples Creek Roadless Area, an area recommended for wilderness designation by the Forest Service. We will be removing ladder fuels, vegetation and leaf litter from the bases of large legacy conifers. The project area is a 1-3/4 hour drive east of Sacramento between Hwys 50 and 88 near Kirkwood. Workdays are scheduled June-Aug (See dates below and click on the button to sign up.). More details will be posted within the next few weeks, but please mark your calendar now. Silverfork Campground is close by for those considering a 2-day session and want to reduce their commuting (though you are welcome to volunteer for just either day). Thank you for considering!
