Mark your calendars for the MLT Annual Dinner on March 5, 2017. The dinner will be held at Azalea Hall in McKinleyville, with doors opening at 5 pm. This year we welcome Jennifer Wheeler, a local Botanist with the Bureau of Land Management who will be discussing restoration of native coastal grasslands using locally sourced, native grasses. Jennifer will discuss her efforts and successes, in partnering with the Mattole Restoration Council and Humboldt Fish Action Council, to restore grassland ecosystems in the King Range National Conservation Area, and the Lacks Creek Management Area in the Redwood Creek watershed. The MLT encourages restoration of local, native plants wherever possible, and we look forward to hearing more on this important topic.
Jennifer Wheeler works for the BLM in Arcata, California, and has been practicing conservation management of productive perennial grasslands as well as in native coastal dune landscapes for 24 years, and counting.
