Join Sanctuary Forest on Sunday, May 6th for the Nurturing Biodiversity Tour. Hosted by Kyle Keegan and family, this tour/workshop on their "Fools Farm" in Salmon Creek will be an ecology-based hike that focuses on key elements of land stewardship. During this era of rapid global biodiversity loss, landowners can play a role in protecting and enhancing wildlife habitat on their land. The workshop will include oak woodland, forest and grassland restoration and habitat enhancement techniques for birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, native plants and pollinators. Information and examples will be shared on how to be successful with nest box designs and location, creating snags, mammal dens, ephemeral ponds and more! Participants will also learn about some of the unique natural history of Salmon Creek while keeping our ears and eyes alert for resident and migratory birds, active reptiles and busy pollinators. There will also be a brief introduction to the use of game cameras to monitor wildlife on your land.
  • The hike will be moderate with some hill climbs.
  • Please bring a lunch, water, sun hat and hiking shoes. Binoculars optional.
  • Please meet at the Shop Smart parking lot in Redway at 9am to carpool.
  • The hike is free of charge, though donations are gladly accepted and help us to offer this program year after year.

And such beautiful photography of this amazing river that is just minutes from my home. Very inspiring! Thank you.”  -Gillian Brown. “We were wowed by this film, learned so much, put our environment all in perspective.” -Marilee & Ken Kline.

 

Film producer Michael Wier:  “After viewing the film, I'm hoping the audience comes away with a better understanding of the issues facing native fish recovery in the Eel watershed and how competing interests can find solutions that work for people and fish.  Thank you for coming out to view these important films!”

Please tune-in to KMUD 91.1 or www.kmud.org on Thursday, May 31st at 7:00 p.m. for the Sanctuary Forest Radio Hour. Sanctuary Forest’s Lands Director Galen Doherty and Education Director Anna Rogers will be previewing the 2018 hike schedule; ranging from child friendly river-walks to timber harvest tours. We will also be hearing about upcoming events from both the Mattole Restoration Council and the Lost Coast Interpretive Association. The 2nd half of the show will focus on Sanctuary Forest’s ongoing efforts to promote coordinated water management on a sub-basin scale and facilitate the development of neighborhood/tributary collectives to improve streamflows, form road associations, and develop restoration projects in key tributaries in the Mattole River. Be sure and tune in to learn about our hikes and how you and your neighbors can help reduce the low flow problem in our local streams!
 
There may be an opportunity for listeners to call in during the last quarter of the show.
 
Sanctuary Forest is a land trust whose mission is to conserve the Mattole River watershed and surrounding areas for wildlife habitat and aesthetic, spiritual and intrinsic values, in cooperation with our diverse community.
