Stewardship Day at Fitch Mountain / Día de Conservación en Fitch Mountain

Saturday, July 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free

Lend a hand at Fitch Mountain Open Space Preserve, a 173-acre protected people-powered park in Healdsburg. With your help, we can steward for ecological health and wildfire resilience, the trees, native plants, animals, and insects that live on this beautiful mountain. Fitch Mountain Preserve is owned by the City of Healdsburg and stewarded with the help of LandPaths.

Fitch Mountain is located on the ancestral home of the Southern Pomo people, past, present, and future. We recognize them as the first people and the first stewards of this land.

Tasks: We’ll be stewarding the land by pulling French Broom (Genista monspessulana), an invasive plant thats grows very fast and in dense stands. If left to its own devices, French broom can overshadow the plant communities under the trees and become a fuel ladder for wildfire. By pulling broom, we keep them from growing thicker and taller before wildfire season. This helps the forest be more healthy and resilient in the chance that wildfire comes through the preserve. Lend a hand and be part of the solution!


Eche una mano en Fitch Mountain Open Space Preserve, un parque protegido de 173 acres impulsado por personas en Healdsburg. Con su ayuda, podemos proteger la salud ecológica y la resistencia a los incendios forestales, los árboles, las plantas nativas, los animales y los insectos que viven en esta hermosa montaña.

Fitch Mountain se encuentra en el hogar ancestral del pueblo pomo del sur, pasado, presente y futuro. Los reconocemos como los primeros habitantes y administradores de esta tierra.

Tareas del día: Este día nos enfocamos en arrancar la retamilla que crece bajo las copas de los robles y madroños. La retamilla (Genista monspessulana) es una planta invasora que crece muy rápido y crece en rodales densos. Si no se controlan, invaden los bosques de robles y aumientan el riesgo de que los incendios forestales alcancen las copas de los árboles más establecidos. Esta trababajo apoya la biodiversidad en los bosques de robles y fomenta la resistencia a los incendios forestales. ¡Eche una mano y sea parte de la solución!
