Learn How ‘Sudden Oak Death’ is Changing Southern Humboldt Forests at the Healy
Sudden Oak Death is reshaping our local forests here in Southern Humboldt. Come learn more from Yana Valachovic, Forest Advisor for University of California Cooperative Extension in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties, on Tuesday, January 21 at 7 pm at the Healy Senior Center. Since 2004 Yana has led a monitoring and management program for sudden oak death in the North Coast and for this program she will provide an opportunity for Southern Humboldt residents to hear how this disease is reshaping our forests, and to discuss the future of tanoak in our region. Yana is a registered professional forester and forest scientist whose skills and interests cover a wide set of natural resource fields including forest health, forest management, and fire ecology.
This presentation is part of an ongoing series from Lost Coast Interpretive Association, who brings environmental education to the Southern Humboldt community and is a member of the King Range Alliance, in partnership with the King Range National Conservation Area.
A sumptuous selection of desserts, as well as coffee and tea will be available for donation. Healy Senior Center is located at 456 Briceland Road in Redway.
