Local environmentalists can celebrate Earth Day by planting native plants on a hillside overlooking Berryessa Gap on Saturday, April 20, all the while raising funds for the Putah Creek Council’s education programs.

The “plantathon” will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. near Winters, where volunteers will plant the landscape around the Solano County Water Agency’s office near Lake Solano. For every plant volunteers put in the ground, the agency will contribute $20 toward the Putah Creek Council’s in-school education program, Adopt a Flat. The education program helps local elementary students learn about Putah Creek by raising native plants in their classroom, and then planting them in habitat improvement areas along the creek.

The all-day event will include planting native plants for wildlife habitat and screening around the office property, installing drip irrigation to all the plants, and spreading mulch around the planting site.

All participants will receive a free T-shirt and lunch.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome, including supervised children. They need not stay the entire day, but everyone must arrive by 9:30 a.m. for instruction.

All needed plants, tools, gloves and other supplies will be provided. Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes and dress appropriately for the weather in clothes that can get dirty. They also must register at www.putahcreekcouncil.org, or by calling 530-795-3006. Directions are provided to volunteers upon registration.
