Hardcore Natural History Series - Eucalyptus with Rick Van Stolk

Tasmanian blue gum Eucalyptus has become a prominent feature of the California landscape since it "migrated" here in the mid-19th century. Join us and sponsor Wrath Winery to discuss the history, ecology, and human impacts of Eucalyptus in California with amateur naturalist Rick Van Stolk. Rick has almost a half century of experience managing eucalyptus as a resource, struggling with it as an invader, watching as its flames threatened to consume his family’s home, and studying how his neighbors and the forest itself responds to fire.
