Public Meeting On Bark Beetle Infestation

OAKHURST – The community and all interested stakeholders are invited to a public meeting on the bark beetle infestation in our forests and foothills, on Saturday May 30, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Oakhurst Elementary School Auditorium.

This meeting is hosted in partnership with Cal Fire and District 5 Supervisor Tom Wheeler’s office.

Attendees will be given detailed descriptions of the beetle infestation causes, measures to be taken to prevent tree loss, problem diagnosis, and what to do if tree death does occur. They will also be provided a contact list for contractors with skills in mastication, fuels reduction, and dead tree removal.

This event is free to the public, but participants are encouraged to register so there are enough meeting materials for everyone. For registration, or for more information on this meeting, please contact Event Coordinator Justine Reynolds at or (559)-877-8663.

The Oakhurst Elementary School is located at 49495 Road 427 (School Road) in Oakhurst.

The organization and outreach for this meeting is coordinated by Yosemite/Sequoia Resource Conservation & Development Council (Y/S RC&D Council), through a generous grant from PG&E. Y/S RC&D Council is a four-county non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the quality and aesthetic values of our cultural, environmental and recreational resources by improving the quality of life through sustainable, diverse economic development.

  1. It would be wonderful if this meeting could be taped and published for those who can’t attend but need to know.

  2. I’d love to see a meeting here in North Fork. And good idea, Susan Welsh.

  3. Good idea Susan Welsh. Perhaps STI could do the deed and make it available on the web.
