Alamo Creek Restoration
Solano RCD is looking for volunteers to help plant native plants along Alamo Creek and nearby bike trails. We need to plant more than 500 native trees and shrubs and thousands of native grass, sedge and wildflower plugs during January, February, and March 2015.
Join us on any or all of our volunteer planting days!
No expertise is needed to help– anyone with an interest in conservation or restoration is welcome at these events, including families, clubs and service groups. Dress in layers, and bring sun protection and a water bottle. Solano RCD will provide snacks and all necessary tools.
