Join Rivers & Lands Conservancy for our annual acorn harvest at Cienega Canyon Preserve! Over the last decade, oaks in the preserve have died from drought, pests, and pathogens. The loss of oaks means the loss of food and shelter for wildlife that rely on oaks for their survival. To help restore lost oaks, we collect acorns in the fall with the help of volunteers so we can plant the next generation of oak trees the following winter. We hope you can celebrate the fall season with us as we go trick-or-tree’ting for acorns!
All ages are welcome at this family friendly event! Minors must be accompanied by an adult and under their supervision for the entire event. Long pants and comfortable closed-toe shoes are required. Volunteers will be hiking approximately 1-2 miles. Portions of the trail can be uneven and can include some uphill and downhill terrain. Bags and buckets for collecting acorns will be provided. Please note there are no restrooms onsite.
Space is limited. Interested volunteers must RSVP to Angie at email@example.com to reserve a spot.
Many thanks to our project funders at Edison International and Inland Empire Resource Conservation District for supporting our efforts to restore and steward oak woodland habitat at Cienega Canyon Preserve! 😎🌳
