Cal Fire Crews Make Mitteldorf Preserve Safer
Over the last several weeks, Cal Fire crews created defensible space around the lodge and the legacy redwood tree at Mitteldorf Preserve. Crews removed ceanothus, surface and ladder fuels, and several dead, downed tanoaks around the lodge and the bunkhouse. Cal Fire will now be working with Hadley Hargrove, Big Sur Land Trust’s preserve manager, to identify and take down hazardous trees along older access roads so that additional critical emergency access can be available.
Hiking at Mitteldorf Preserve is now open – and your patience has been greatly appreciated. These efforts are just one example of how Big Sur Land Trust’s stewardship team is continually working with partners on fire mitigation to help keep our preserves and neighboring communities safer and more resilient!
