Planting Trees and Forest Restoration: Public Presentation in Los Alamos

  • Los Alamos Nature Center (map)

The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) invites you to a free presentation on the community’s role in forest restoration. 

PEEC will host District Ranger Sandy Hurlocker and forester David Gilmore, both from the Española Ranger District of the Santa Fe National Forest, on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. at the Los Alamos Nature Center. 

Hurlocker will provide the “big picture,” a status on landscape-scale efforts to improve the forest’s resilience to major disturbances, including wildfire, insects and disease, and climate change.  Gilmore will address one specific piece of the restoration strategy – planting trees – and how communities can play a productive role in large-scale projects.

“Science-based forest restoration is one of our top priorities,” Hurlocker said.  “Our goal is to manage the landscape to meet present and future needs.  Community input and community participation are key to our success.”
