On Saturday, March 22, Putah Creek Council and the Yolo Resource Conservation District will host a special celebration and work day to finish the habitat plantings on the storm water channel in North Davis, a channel known by locals as “The Ditch.”

An awards ceremony with free coffee and morning snacks will be held from 9 to 9:30 a.m. at Spider Web Park, near the east end of Eagle Place. Following the ceremony, volunteers will help from 9:30 a.m. to noon in groups, undertaking various activities including planting, mulching, setting up irrigation and plant protectors, and pruning.

“This will be a fun day to honor project supporters, and celebrate the accomplishments of the community,” said Libby Earthman, Putah Creek Council executive director. “I hope the community is proud of this project, and the contributions they have made for wildlife, and for the enjoyment, character and safety of this area.”

In addition to work tasks, volunteers can participate in a make-your-own nature art station, and an education station with a mini-watershed model to learn about the importance of native plants.
A limited number of tools will be provided, but volunteers are urged to bring their own wheelbarrows, shovels, gloves and buckets. Volunteers should label their tools before bringing them.

Volunteers should dress appropriately for the weather in clothes that can get dirty and closed-toe shoes, and bring a water-bottle and their own coffee mug to make this event as low-waste as possible.

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