The conks, or fruiting bodies, of the fungus that causes Heterobasidion root disease, Photo by Bill Woodruff As part of its Discover Lassen County educational series -- field trips designed to explore the natural and cul- turaI heritage that makes the northeastern corner of Call- , fornia unique -- Lassen Land and Trails Trust (LLTT)in- vites community members to discover the roles of insects and pathogens in the forest from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Satur- day, June 23. The trip will include moder- ate walking (approximately three miles) and will be led by Danny Cluck, a forest ento- mologist, and Bill Woodruff, a plant pathologist for the U.S. Forest Service, both of whom have lived and worked in northeastern California for more than 20 years. The forests in Lassen County are highly diverse, ranging from lower elevation "eastside" pine and juniper forest to stands of upper ele- vation red fir and lodgepole p'ine. Within each of these forest types exists an array of native forest insects and pathogens that play an im- portant role in dynamic eco- logical processes. This field trip will take place around Hog Flat Reser- voir, Chaparral Hill, Hamil- ton Mountain and Willard Creek. Participants will stop at different locations to look at some of the areas most im- portant to forest insects and diseases, including various species of bark and wood bor- ing beetles, root diseases, stem decays and dwarf and true mistletoes. In addition, participants will learn certain aspects of forest tree physiology and stand dynamics. A lunchtime presentation will discuss threats from non-native in- sects and diseases that can harm forest resources. Although the focus of the trip will be on the forest insects and diseases of trees, partici- pants will likely encounter and have the opportunity to discuss many other species along the way. Registration is $15 per per- son and includes lunch. LLTT member registration fee is $10. For more information and to register, visit llt- tweb.org or call 257-3252. LLTT, a nonprofit, member- ship-supported organization, actively works to conserve significant natural areas and working landscapes and to promote and enhance a sys- tem of public trails in north- eastern California, where the Sierra Nevada and Cascades meet the Modoc Plateau and the Great Basin.
