Putah Creek Council will host a community service activity along Putah Creek in Winters on Monday, Feb. 17, to bring community members together to plant alders, a native streamside tree species. The new trees will help provide wildlife habitat, control erosion and improve water quality.

Alders are extremely important trees along creeks because their shade helps keep water temperature cooler, they contribute nitrogen, an important nutrient for plants and insects, and their roots provide valuable habitat for aquatic insects and fish, a news release said.

“This is a great opportunities for families to spend some time on beautiful Putah Creek, working together to make a difference.” said Libby Earthman, Putah Creek Council’s executive director. “The community has been so supportive of the Winters Putah Creek Park habitat planting projects over the last couple years, and we’re excited to have folks come back out for more planting next week.”

Registered volunteers will meet at the Rotary Park gazebo, 201 Railroad Ave. in  Winters at 9:30 a.m., and car-pool to the project site from there. Work will continue until noon.

All ages welcome, including supervised children. Putah Creek Council will provide all the plants, tools, gloves and other supplies. Volunteers should dress appropriately for the weather in clothes that can get dirty and should wear closed-toe shoes. This is a rain or shine event, and mud boots and ponchos will be supplied if needed.

Volunteers must register at www.putahcreekcouncil.org, or by calling 530-795-3006.
