Update on Dry Creek and Homer Ranch Preserves

With the opening day only 5 weeks away, the Dry Creek and Homer Ranch Preserves have taken on a new identity. Dressed up in wildflowers and brand new visitor amenities, these new nature preserves are eager to show off their splendor and welcome you to their trails on May 21, 2011.

It’s taken many helping hands to get this far, and there’s plenty more to go. Thank you to all who have shared your time, talent and dedication to the project. Check out the progress at Dry Creek Preserve and Homer Ranch. If you’d like to get involved, sign up for our volunteer e-newsletter by emailing laura@sequoiariverlands.org.

    I am in San Mateo county and have a hillside of silver bush lupine. I have gathered the seed and planted them in seedling trays and they are coming up. Can you direct me to some resources that would tell me what to do next to keep them going until the fall when I can plant them in the ground.

    CAREFULLY remove the container from the rootball. The best way to do this is to hold the plant and pot sideways and pull the container from the rootball, NEVER pull the plant itself. Plant it in a larger container with well drained soil and place in an area that get morning light but not hot afternoon sun. After a week or two begin slowly moving it out into progessively sunnier areas. In the fall, when it gets cool plant in the ground using the same replanting technique.
