On the evening of August 23th, 2012, a wildfire spread through a section of the central rocky areas in Uplands Park. The small Garry Oak Oak trees were scorched. All the leaves were brown or blackened. All the undergrowth was charred. I took a set of photos on August 28th, 2012 and posted them at https://friendsofuplandspark.wordpress.com/category/fire-in-uplands-park/. I took a second set of photos on September 30, 2012. It was so exciting to see new green leaves on many of those scorched Garry Oaks. Even more exciting was to see new Garry Oak seedlings emerge at the base of some of the other scorched trees. Also, new shoots had appeared at the base of one of the burned Indian Plums. The resilience of life in our Garry Oak Meadows is awesome. Here are those photos.
