April Happenings in Claremont Canyon  Saturday, April 28: Sudden Oak Death Bio-Blitz. Help with the East Bay 2012 Sudden Oak Death survey--a chance to lessen damage and save some trees! Last Spring's late warm rains may have helped spread the pathogen that now threatens our beautiful coast live oaks. Attend a one-hour training and get materials at 10 AM at the Orinda Community Center or at 1 PM at 159 Mulford Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. Volunteers will then go into the field either to designated spots or in their own backyards to identify threatened trees and then turn in samples by 7 PM Sunday April 29th.
To sign up, go to or for information contact Susan Schwartz at or Shelagh Brodersen at The event is sponsored by Friends of Five Creeks, Friends of Sausal Creek and Garber Park Stewards.

Become involved and help to map the distribution of Sudden Oak Death (SOD) in California by joining the group of hundreds of citizen scientists who have been helping for the past four years by participating in local SOD BLITZES.  Attend a one-hour long local training offered by U.C. Berkeley scientist Dr. Matteo Garbelotto, obtain your SOD collection package, and then collect symptomatic plant material in the 48 hours following the training.  Plant material will be processed at Berkeley and results will be posted on an interactive web-available map on October 1. Do not bring material before you attend the training session, as plants need to be sampled following a precise although simple protocol!
Whether you have already participated in a SOD BLITZ, or it is your first time, California oaks need you:  residents with confirmed local SOD infections in their neighborhood can in fact protect their trees from becoming infected rather inexpensively.  Training sessions on how to manage SOD are offered monthly at U.C. Berkeley, and weekly during the Fall in various California locations.
Main reasons to participate in a 2012 SOD-BLITZ:
SOD changes distribution every year
2011 was a major year (a "wave" year) for SOD spread, most of the spread occurred AFTER the 2011 Blitzes were conducted
Years following a  "wave" year are also conducive to the spread of SOD. Hence, we predict the pathogen will spread further in 2012
2012 Blitzes will follow a NEW protocol that will allow us to estimate the actual local SOD infection rate, rather that just informing on local SOD distribution!
