    Description

    Throughout California, public awareness on the role humans play in the decline of oak acreage is increasing. Public and private organizations, agencies, and individuals are instituting planting days, releasing articles on oaks to the media, and sponsoring lectures. Many of these activities are limited in scope and lack a strong educational component that promotes sustainability. Educational programs certainly need to address such issues as site selection and preparation, acorn selection and storage, nursery propagation, species identification, and audience identification. This paper discusses sustainability as it relates to stand restoration and landscape-wide ecosystems. Educational delivery methods are examined and potential audiences are defined.
