Collect Acorns for Planting in Fire Affected Areas

Acorn Bank logo small

Join our efforts to collect acorns this fall for planting in areas affected by fire, this is a collaborative project between the Mendocino Resource Conservation District, UC Hopland Research and Extension Center, Mendocino County Libraries and The Oak Granary.

Collect your acorns in a ziploc bag, make sure you fill in the data sheet (required) and deliver to your local Mendocino County Library. Acorns will be replanted in fire affected areas. We are particularly interested in acorns from Redwood Valley in the Tomki Creek area.

Species of particular interest include: black oak, Oregon white oak, interior live oak, canyon live oak, blue oak, valley oak.
