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.”

To register for the event, visit the Lake Group’s online calendar at www.sierraclub.org/redwood/lake.

Registrants will receive access information upon registration and a confirmation reminder the morning of the event. Zoom space is limited, so the event will also be live-streamed via the Lake Group's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/sierraclublake.

The Sierra Club Lake Group represents more than 400 Sierra Club members living in Lake County and is part of the Redwood Chapter of the Sierra Club that represents the northwest region of California.

The group works to preserve Lake County's wild heritage; protect and restore Clear Lake and its watershed; and promote smart growth, sustainable practices and environmentally friendly development. It also fosters a meaningful connection to the environment for the community to value and enjoy through guided hikes and community events.
