Pond and Creek Restoration Field Days for Landowners

The UC Hopland Research and Extension Center (HREC) and Sonoma State University Galbreath Wildlands Preserve have teamed up to offer a two-part series sharing effective approaches to preserve and enhance the creeks and ponds vital for local ecosystems. These events will include the role of maintaining stream flow, woody debris, restoring riparian vegetation and invasive species control (with a focus on bullfrogs and invasive plants). The first field day (Monday, May 15) will be at HREC, the University of California’s principal field research facility for agriculture and natural resources in the North Coast region. The second event (Monday, May 22) will take place at Sonoma State University’s 3,670-acre Galbreath Wildlands Preserve in the upper Navarro watershed in Yorkville.

The events will take place on Monday, May 15 from 10am-1pm at HREC, and on Monday, May 22 from 9:30am-1pm at the Galbreath Wildlands Preserve. Registration ranges from free-$10 per person. Registration for both events is required and can be made at:
