Community Engagement
RFFI Reaches Out

RFFI has expanded and deepened its community engagement efforts throughout the redwood region. Below are just a few of the recent activities in which RFFI's president, Mark Welther, and RFFI staff and volunteers were delighted to be involved:

  • March 29, 2014, Jeff Hedin, Judy Harwood and Art Harwood hosted a Usal Tour and Community Meeting for Forests International representatives from New Brunswick, Canada. Forests International is an environmental start-up, working to connect people and their communities to the forests that sustain them.

  • April 11, 2014, along with the Sonoma Biochar Initiative & Sonoma Ecology Center, RFFI co-sponsored a Biochar and Conservation Burn Workshop in Ukiah, CA.

  • April 12, 2104, was Earth Day in Redwood Regional Park, Oakland, CA, and RFFI planted 75 of its redwoods in the park.

  • April 19, 2014, was Earth Day at Parducci's Organic Gardens and Tasting Room in Ukiah, CA, where RFFI joined a "Party for the Planet" and distributed 135 redwood seedlings to the public.

  • April 23, 2014, Richard Gienger coordinated a RFFI Restoration Workshop in Leggett, CA, along with other public and private organizations. The workshop - the first in a series - focused on restoration practices currently or potentially applicable to Usal Redwood Forest.

  • April 28, 2014, there was an Acorn Orchard Meeting at Harwood Hall with representatives of Native American groups to discuss harvesting and RFFI's ongoing partnership with Native Americans.
