On September 28th, 2015 the California Project Review Committee met and approved a number of very good projects for funding in the upcoming year. Chapter Rewards earned at California Banquets in 2015 were used to fund these projects. They include:
The Gobbler Fire Reseeding project in Trinity County: MDF funded $7500.00 for reseeding critical areas with native forbs and grasses burned in this summer’s wildfires.
The Tule River Reservation Protection Project in the Sequoia National Forest: MDF funded $10,000.00 to pay for prescribed burning operations to open up decadent habitat and reduce fuel loads in deer summer range.
