Last weekend, 27 local volunteers planted more than 400 native shrubs and trees in a storm water channel in North Davis, as part of the North Davis Riparian Greenbelt project. The project is designed to improve the storm water channel by replacing weedy, annual vegetation with drought-tolerant vegetation that benefits wildlife, water quality and pollinators.

“So many people have dedicated time and expertise to helping plan this community project, and it was very exciting to see the plants finally getting into the ground,” said Libby Earthman, executive director of Putah Creek Council. “The plants went in quickly with such a large, enthusiastic crew. People were excited to see the project taking shape after just a couple if hours of planting.”

Planting events will continue over the next two weekends, with morning and afternoon shifts available. Interested community members are invited to help; no experience is needed.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome, including supervised children. Putah Creek Council will provide all needed plants, tools, gloves and other supplies.

“It feels great to get these plants in the ground where they’ll promote native pollinators, provide screening from adjacent farm operations, and continue to provide a place away from the hectic pace of everyday life,” Earthman said.

Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes and dress appropriately for the weather in clothes that can get dirty. Volunteers must register at www.putahcreekcouncil.org, or by calling 530-795-3006. Meeting points are provided to volunteers upon registration.
