Tree planting in Angora burn area to honor Israel

Sara Thompson

In celebration of Israel’s 60th anniversary of independence, the Consulate General of Israel will hold a tree planting and revegetation event in the Angora burn area.

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, El Dorado County and other agencies are working together with the Israel Consulate on this event.

About 60 Jeffrey pine seedlings will be planted on four El Dorado County-owned parcels near Elk Point Drive and Lookout Point Circle.

The event will last from noon to 2 p.m. June 5 and will include refreshments, music and a presentation of plaques.

Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to show up wearing the proper attire for planting trees.
