  • The Great Oak Count

    Saturday, October 28, 2017

    Time: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
    Location: Mayfield Park, 2300 Wellesley St, Palo Alto, CA 94306, USA

    Join Canopy for the launch of the most comprehensive survey of native oaks in the bay area! This citizen science effort will collect valuable information about our native oak tree population, to be used by scientists to evaluate how our urban forest ecosystem has changed since the last survey over 20 years ago. We will also pass along oak care tips to owners, and have fun exploring areas of town that you may have never seen before!

    Our pilot starts in the College Terrace neighborhood, going block by block to locate and map our beloved oaks. If you are also interested in becoming a Survey Leader with special training to use throughout Palo Alto, please contact Elise Willis at Elise@canopy.org. Exact meeting location TBD.
