CSNC is looking for volunteers to work in the Camp Creek area (near North South Road and Mormon Emigrant Trail) to block an unauthorized vehicle route that is directly impacting sensitive resources in the Eldorado National Forest. At this location, there is an unauthorized road accessing a Lava Cap. Vehicle traffic has introduced annual grasses that pose a fire hazard when vehicles drive or park on them. Vehicles are also impacting sensitive native Lava Cap species. We will be scattering duff and small woody debris to protect bare soil and large woody debris to break runoff, reduce sedimentation, and prevent vehicles from entering the sensitive habitat.
We are meeting at the Georgetown Library at 8:30 a.m. and the Placerville Raley’s parking lot by the gas station at 9:00 a.m. Please RSVP to let us know if you are attending so we won’t leave without you! We will return by 5 pm. Please dress accordingly for the weather. Bring plenty of sun protection, such as a hat and a long sleeve shirt, water, a lunch, sturdy shoes or boots, gloves, and anything you might want for a day in the forest.For more information or to coordinate travel plans, please email Karen Schambach at Karen@SierraNevadaConservation.org.
