LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Sierra Club Lake Group will host award winning artist, April Lynch, on the diverse species of oak trees native to this region at their next community meeting on Thursday, May 26, at 6 p.m.

The presentation and discussion will be held via Zoom video conference and live-streamed on Facebook. The meeting is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required to attend via Zoom.

Lynch, a Master Gardener since 2009, will share about the diverse species of native oaks in Lake County.

Her work is based on 12 years of research and includes more than 150 scenic photographs of oak trees and other natural wonders from Colusa, Lake and Sonoma counties.

Born and raised in California, her interests include native oaks, wildflowers, vegetable gardening and home orchards.

She is a photographer and an award-winning artist; and has co-authored and published “Wildflowers! A Guide to Identifying the Wildflowers of Northern California's Wine Country.”

Sierra Club Lake Group President Deb Sally, explained, "As one of our dominant species in Lake County, these trees are not only magnificent in beauty and increase property value, but they provide important benefits for many species like shade and habitat, food, and soil erosion protection.”
