The following is a press release issued by the City of Fort Bragg
You are warmly invited to lend a hand at the Otis R. Johnson Wilderness Park for the health of the forest, soil, and water. This seven-acre city park in the middle of Fort Bragg teems with beautiful redwoods, and several small creeks.
Come on out and join Conservation Works and their friendly stewardship staff to help keep the watershed healthy and resilient in the face of environmental challenges, and have fun outdoors with like-minded people.
They have been pulling invasive ivy and crocosmia and lopping acacia trees for the past year with community volunteers to protect this redwood forest ecosystem. Come out and help them steward the park. You’ll be supporting the park’s biodiversity and caring for the land in a way that makes a difference.
Here are some of the activities they will be doing on their stewardship days:
- Planting redwood trees
- Removing invasive plants and trees
- Cleaning up the creek and picking up litter
