Templeton news, calendar, events, local government, and more!

Above: One of the many heritage oaks in historic downtown Templeton is well on its way to completely leafing out in mid-April of this year.  The oaks are a significant part of the area's heritage and ecosystem.  At one time, oaks almost completely covered hillsides and open spaces in this area.  When settlers arrived, trees were removed or harvested so that crops could be planted, homes, barns and furniture built, cook stoves, wood stoves and fire places stoked, and charcoal produced for sale in the big cities to the north and south.  Photo (c) Soaring Eagle Press 2018; All Rights Reserved
