Project: Shiwaka Urban Forest Restoration & Landscape Development Planning Project

Description: Funding re-conceptualizes elements of the back area of the Camp Fire site to incorporate more natural elements and water quality and infiltration opportunities. The planning/concept design will include three explicit outdoor education spaces with natural landscaping; replacing a seldom used, oversized amphitheater; vernal pool and dry creek beds intended to collect and filter rainwater on campus; a rest stop/bike stop along the northern boundary, just west of entry way; and a reclaimed water and smart irrigation station. The overall proposed project will encompass the development of an urban forest, including an extensive landscaping master plan with trails, interpretive signage, vernal pools as well as a new trail, called the Discovery Trail. These improvements will allow for the use of Camp Fire’s facility and provide for significant enhancements to its fully accredited camp; in addition, the general public will also utilize these new and improved nature trails during normal operating hours.
