Restoration & Conservation

Fire Recovery & Resilience Efforts

Elementary students and their gardening teacher, Tina Thomas, at John B. Riebli Elementary School in Santa Rosa are growing oak trees from acorns collected immediately after the October wildfires. The Laguna Foundation helped support this worthwile project by donating a nursery shade table, pots and potting soil to the school.

Nearly one-third of the students at John B. Riebli Elementary School lost their homes in the Tubbs Fire. These young students are helping to rejuvenate their community by giving the native oak seedlings to their families and neighbors to plant in their neighborhoods next winter. Thank you!

We working as part of a greater fire recovery collective to develop a clearer understanding of the ecological impacts to the land and to help with replanting native species on fire impacted properties. Click here for more information.
