Protecting and Perpetuating California’s Native Oaks, a Talk by Angela Moskow
July 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an in-person talk by Angela Moskow. Angela will begin her presentation with an overview of the importance of native oaks for California’s biodiversity. Then she’ll discuss how historic oak maps can inform oak restoration and provide an overview of the importance of native oaks for California’s biodiversity.
Angela’s presentation will then shift to the work of the 72-member California Oaks Coalition, an initiative of the California Wildlife Foundation, which brings together international, national, Tribal, state, regional, and local organizations to conserve and perpetuate the state’s primary old growth resource. This part of the presentation will focus on collaborations between California Wildlife Foundation’s California Oaks program and the California Native Plant Society, a member of the coalition.
Angela Moskow manages the California Oaks program at California Wildlife Foundation. The foundation is committed to conserving, restoring and maintaining habitats and corridor linkages to ensure biological diversity. The California Oaks program works to conserve and perpetuate the state’s primary old growth resource through the publication and dissemination of informational resources about oaks, preparation of comment letters about projects with oak impacts and advocacy for stronger local and statewide oak protections. Angela earned a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and Philosophy from Oberlin College and a Master of Science in International Agricultural Development from UC Davis.
