Volunteers clean melted irrigation pipe and plant hundreds of acorns

By on January 22, 2018 in News, Ventura River Preserve, Volunteers

Last week, with the help of OVLC volunteers and students from the Thacher School, the OVLC cleared 27 acres of melted irrigation pipe and planted hundreds of acorns to replace the thousands of young oak trees that burned in the restoration area along Rice Creek.

Katherine Holden, OVLC member and volunteer, was inspired to write the following haiku after participating in the clean up.

Hands ready to help
tend the land in times of need.
New green dares to grow.
