According to Mark Schnaidt of Chevron, the California Department of Fish and Game is satisfied with Chevron’s re-vegetation project (the “Chevron Grove”)’ on Jan. 8, he met with Andy and Carolyn to begin the transition process whereby the Endowment will be responsible for maintainance of the grove. Four years ago Andy and Steve Hampson gathered approximately 8 red willow and about 100 cottonwood cuttings which they then planted. Chevron put in and maintained an irrigation system. The trees are now well-established; a few perished during a temporary glitch in the watering system but the remainder look very healthy.
