Pepperwood’s Preserve Ecologist, Michelle Halbur, was on the cover of the Sunday, June 4th Press Democrat! She was photographed while surveying grasses at the site of our June 2015 prescribed burn. The article mentions the work Pepperwood is doing to reduce fuel loads, including selective cattle grazing, douglas-fir thinning, and prescribed burning. View the online version here.
You can read about our June 2015 prescribed burn, which targeted the invasive Medusahead weed, on our blog. We hope to conduct a second prescribed burn, in partnership with CAL FIRE, in an adjacent grassland this summer—stay tuned for more information.
