On two sunny and cold days in November, members of our group partnered with Oak Harbor city employees as well as other enthusiastic citizens to plant 100 Garry oak saplings in the new Centennial Grove. This site is visible by many people traveling on nearby Hwy. 20 and the trees will serve as a welcome (or goodbye) to people in the coming decades and indeed, centuries.
As we wrap up 2015 we are grateful to the people who make up our core group of volunteers that have made such a difference in Garry oak conservation in Oak Harbor. We have been encouraged by new people coming to our monthly meetings and offering fresh ideas and assistance. Thank you!
