Walk the North Davis channel next week

By From page A5 | February 08, 2013

The Putah Creek Council invites Davis residents to join an informal walk along the North Davis channel on Sunday from 12:30 to 2 p.m., or Tuesday from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. The walks are a chance to talk about an upcoming urban greening project in the channel.

The project intends to replace weedy vegetation like thistle and foxtail with native riparian plants that improve water quality and wildlife habitat. The project has a special focus on pollinator insects and butterflies.

“The two upcoming walks are an opportunity for citizens to share what they appreciate the most about the channel to help inform the project design,” said Libby Earthman, executive director of the Putah Creek Council.

The group will meet at 12:20 p.m. Sunday at 3500 Anderson Road and at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at the rose-covered seating area in the “Pocket”/”Bird Entry Park” between the channel and Anderson Road.
