Seedlings of Hope
Replanting our History
Join the Central Sierra Resiliency Fund of the Central Sierra Historical Society and our partners as we further our values of Restoration, Community and Stewardship. Plantings began in Spring 2021 with stock procured from local seed banks and nurseries.
Our seedlings are:
- Native species, appropriate for planting in the Central Sierra Region:
- Giant Sequoias, Incense Cedars, Live Oaks, Pines, and White Firs
- Planted as recommended by local foresters
- Planted locally, within the Fresno County footprint of the Creek Fire
With the help of Cal Fire Nurseries and Southern California Edison, the Seedlings of Hope fundraising campaign, community members and dedicated foresters, CSRF has planted 9,335 seedlings, free of charge.
Our partners; American Forest, Mulholland Citrus, and Intermountain Nursery, are growing an additional 48,000 seedlings for planting in Fall 2021 and spring 2022 (soil conditions permitting).
Donate to Seedlings of Hope
Donate $5 and we will plant one seedling within the Fresno County forests affected by the Creek Fire.
These plantings will be done in cooperation with landowners and/or other local, state and federal organizations. One tree will be planted for every $5 donated to this Seedlings of Hope campaign. We will not deliver a tree to the donor or designated honoree or commit to planting a tree on a specific property.
If you would like a seedling planted in memory or in honor of a specific person, please note that information in the memo section below.
