Restoring Oak Habitat Throughout the Region – Update, 2/6/14

Since our inception in 1995, Lomakatsi has been a leader in restoring oak ecosystems throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California. Oak habitat has disappeared from over 90% of Oregon, with less than 1% of Oregon white oak-dominated habitats protected in perpetuity.

Lomakatsi forestry technicians and workforce crews have been hard at work this week, from prescribed underburning and on-the-ground project planning in Siskiyou County, California to ecological thinning in Douglas County, Oregon.

This ecological restoration work is part of a partnership between Lomakatsi, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service and Klamath Bird Observatory to restore declining oak habitat throughout the region.
