It's official: No rainfall was recorded on our area during the month of January. This simple fact flew in the face of my prediction that it just couldn't get any worse that last year. The fallout is serious and will be long lasting, including another dry and potentially record-breaking fire season.
Fire was on everyone's mind at the January 2015 Forest Forum meeting, as guest speakers Pat Ferrell of the USFS and Robert Little of CalFire reported on the status of salvage efforts in the aftermath of the King Fire. The meeting was well-attended, with 46 in all, and at a venue we will most certainly be returning to, Teresa's Place in Jackson. Not only is their meeting room, food, and audio/visual set up great, but the prices are reasonable and the management is very accommodating.
Onward to another nice venue for February's meeting, the Smith Flat House in Placerville. A gourmet pizza and salad bar will be reasonably priced and delicious as well. For details, see the "Forest Forum Meetings" page on this website.
The Amador-El Dorado Forest Forum is a group of forestry professionals, forestry educators, and others interested in forestry practices and issues. The Forum meets once a month at various locations in the two-county area. The Forum awards scholarships to local college students majoring in Forestry and sponsors the California Forestry Challenge. Everyone is welcome to join our group. We have great dinner meetings, an annual Blanket Party, and participate in El Dorado County Farm Day. For complete details on upcoming Forest Forum meetings, go to the "Forest Forum Mtgs." page.
