Volunteers needed for planting project Sunday

Dry Creek, which typically runs lower during the winter, will receive newly planted native shrubs as volunteers descend upon its banks from 9:30 a.m. to noon Sunday, Dec. 9.

Putah Creek Council seeks volunteers to help plant native shrubs from 9:30 a.m. to noon Sunday along Dry Creek in Winters. The new plantings will provide food and shelter to wildlife, attract beneficial pollinators, and help protect water quality by preventing erosion and filtering runoff.

Although the Dry Creek channel is dry most of the year, it is an important tributary of Putah Creek, a news release said. In winter, the channel fills with water and carries gravel and cobble into gravel-starved Putah Creek. Gravel is a crucial element in creeks because it provides habitat for insects and spawning areas for fish.

“Dry Creek is a really neat site, and the work we’re doing here is important for the Putah Creek food chain,” said Libby Earthman, executive director of the Putah Creek Council.

This event is part of a three-year project to help repair damage caused by illegal vehicles on creeks in the Putah Creek watershed.

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 closed-toe shoes. The planting work will take place rain or shine, and mud boots and ponchos will be supplied if needed.

Volunteers must register online at www.putahcreekcouncil.org or by calling 530-795-3006. Volunteers will meet at the Winters Joint Unified School District Office parking lot, 909 Grant Ave. in Winters.
