We are happy to announce that the 2017 planting date and location have been set. We are looking forward to celebrating our 13th Planting Season. Volunteers are needed on April 15th to assist in planting native seedlings in the San Bernardino Mountains. Of course this always is pending on the weather. To help with the planting of native seedlings, register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/volunteer-tree-planting-day-tickets-33065186864 or e-mail Mountainreleaf@gmail.com

On March 29th approximately 20,000 seedlings arrived and are currently in cold storage waiting to be planted. We look forward to working with all of you again during our upcoming season. Reforestation of the 2003 and 2007 wildfire burned areas is one part of an ongoing forestry program designed to create a viable and sustainable healthy forest system for the future. Watch for more information and meeting location.
