10:00 am Demonstrate renovation pruning of large shrubs, using the lilac at the front gate. Provide information on seasonal timing to prune flowering shrubs and proper pruning techniques.
10:30 am Install botanical signs, add new plantings and maintain the Native Plant Demonstration Garden (weed & apply deer repellent)

11:00 am Begin removing turf between dwarf peach, sidewalk and fence. Demonstrate sheet mulching. Install weed block and wood mulch.
Some of the activities overlap. Depending on your interest you can help with various projects. We’ll have lots of information so you can learn by doing. We’ll provide refreshments and lunch beginning at noon to thank the volunteers. For more information contact Carol Fall, Master Gardener Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 623-3746 x1. We hope to see you here!
Materials for the Ranch improvements and the “Thank You” lunch for volunteers are funded by the Shasta College Foundation.
4-H helps young people discover and develop their potential. It provides a wide variety of educational and enrichment experiences.
Master Gardeners extend UC research-based information to the public about home horticulture. In exchange for the training and materials received from the University of California, master gardeners perform volunteer services in a variety of venues.
Our program promotes healthy lifestyles in Trinity County by addressing childhood obesity, family and consumer well-being, food security and food safety. We serve low income people with quality food and nutrition education programs and supervise the UC CalFresh Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Nutrition Education Program (FSNEP).
The forestry program works with private forest landowners, registered professional foresters, agencies, and forest industry personnel, with an emphasis on educational outreach programs focused on forest stewardship and wildfire protection.

Tree Mortality Workshop Information
We have all noticed the large numbers of dying pine and fir trees. Concerned forest landowners attended workshops in Weaverville and Hayfork, hosted by UC Cooperative Extension, CalFire, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Trinity County RCD, and Watershed Research & Training Center, in December 2015 and April 2016. The purposes of the workshops were to briefly identify and discuss the main forest pests in this area, to discuss regulations and funding possibilities related to dead vegetation removal, to describe services and detail projects undertaken locally, and to discuss possible solutions.
