Editor’s Note: The Rio de Las Trampas Forest Council’s restoration program on the Camino Real Ranger District has been thinning acres between the villages of El Valle and Las Trampas since 2019. Based on the traditional acequia system, a mayordomo oversees the work of leñeros (wood cutters) who thin an overstocked forest to provide both forest products and forest health while earning $300 per acre. The Council was awarded a CFRP grant this fall to expand the project to an additional 216 acres. Everyone is welcome to attend this meeting of all who helped the Council obtain the CRFP grant. The Council will be recruiting leñeros as the program expands. If you are interested in participating, please contact mayordomo Rod Dominguez at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 505 239-3485.
