Acorn Harvest

October 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Acorn harvest at DCH

Help preserve our beautiful native oaks. Join SVC and Sac Tree as we team up to reforest our woodlands!

This is a 3-part series where participants will learn about native oaks, how to harvest acorns, and then help collect on site at Deer Creek Hills Preserve.

Acorns harvested will become part of the Sacramento Tree Foundation’s living library of trees, used for local reforestation. To reduce negative impacts at Deer Creek Hills and to harvest in a sensitive and ecologically-appropriate way, we will not take more than 5% of the acorns from any single tree, grove, or woodland. The Sacramento Tree Foundation also diversifies harvesting locations regionally to ensure wide representation of the genetic diversity among oaks.

Requirements

To participate in the collection, volunteers must first complete BOTH training webinars with the Sacramento Tree Foundation.

RSVP below by 6:00pm on Friday, October 9 to reserve a spot. Print, sign, and bring your liability waiver with you to checkin on Sunday.

Volunteers will need to bring their own water, high-energy snacks, and work gloves. Full-length pants and closed-toed shoes are required. Dress for the weather (layers recommended) with a sunhat, protective long-sleeved shirt and sunglasses.

Social distancing protocols will be strictly followed. Bring a mask in case a situation arises where you need to be within 6 feet of another person. Anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms or who may have been exposed to someone with the virus is asked to stay home.

Minors may participate but must be accompanied by an adult.

Important Information

Portapotties are located near the corral parking area. Bring your own hand sanitizer. There is no running water to refill bottles, so please be sure to arrive well-hydrated and bring plenty of drinking water for your visit.
