Name of Project: Protecting Watersheds in San Bernardino National Forest

Number of Trees to be Planted: 75,800

Directly Benefits: Area residents, spotted owls

Location: California

Year: 2011

Goals

·         Reforest 578 acres

·         Increase water quality

·         Provide wildlife habitat

 

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to replant parts of the San Bernardino National Forest that were damaged in the 2003 and 2007 wildfires. The damage to the forest has negatively affected the Lytle Creek Watershed, which includes the Fontana Municipal Water System. Replanting will help to decrease erosion and improve water quality for local residents and wildlife alike.

This planting will also benefit a variety of wildlife species, including the California spotted owl (Strix occidentalis occidentalis). This nocturnal bird is native to the western US, and makes its home in forests with closed canopies.
