WildLink Conifer Tree Removal
Twenty-three THS & PHS WildLinkers took full advantage of a beautiful day in Yosemite Valley by helping the Park restore the oak-studded meadows that have been overrun by conifers in the time of fire-suppression. The club was treated to lunch and a lovely stroll in Leidig Meadows while being taught the importance of black oak trees and their acorns to the Ahwahneechee people. Thanks to years of fire suppression, conifers have quickly started to overrun the meadows and thus threaten the black oak trees. Under the guidance of NatureBridge instructors Ruth & Elspie, our awesome students helped clear over 100 conifer trees near the Four Mile Trail parking area with the hopes of restoring the meadow. A big thanks to Mrs. Chavez, Mr. & Mrs. Brown, Mr. Russel, Mr. Raumann and the Senior Hollisters for driving!
