Sudden Oak Death
2018 Blitz Results Workshop — Wednesday, October 10, 2018 — 6:00-7:30PM
Where: University of California Cooperative Extension Office, 133 Aviation Blvd, #109, Santa Rosa, CA
Hosted by UC Master Gardener Program of Sonoma County Sudden Oak Death Specialists. Thanks to the USDA Forest Service for funding this program.
Results of the 2018 Sudden Oak Death survey, also known as SOD blitz, will be made public at this meeting. This information will allow homeowners to identify new areas at risk and to learn from SOD expert Dr. Matteo Garbelotto (U.C. Berkeley) how to protect oaks from SOD and other threats, including drought.
The SOD Blitzes are volunteer-run surveys to monitor SOD distribution in California, and represent the first and oldest example in the world of how citizens and scientists can join forces to fight a formidable threat to native trees.
