MLK Day at Cordova Creek, a new tradition?

Posted on Thursday, January 24th, 2019
A misty morning at Cordova Creek with a couple clouds. We set out 90 plants for volunteers to put in the ground.
Volunteers gathered at the trailhead to learn about the land's history and to be oriented to the day's tasks.

 

This past Monday, January 21st we had our 2nd Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day at Cordova Creek.  It was a fabulously beautiful and productive day –   under sunny skies,  30+ volunteers planted almost 100 new native plants, protected many more of the existing shrubs and young trees with deer cages, and cleared weeds in planting areas. 

The Water Forum partnered with Sacramento County Regional Parks to organize a day of service at the Cordova Creek naturalization site, giving the community a chance to play a part in the incredible transformation of this land. 

We planted . . . 

Narowleaf Milkweed,  Coyote Mint,  Snowberry,  Chaparral Honeysuckle,  Hollyleaf Redberry,  Coyote Brush,  Hoary Coffeeberry,  Rock Phacelia, Sticky Monkeyflower,  Gaping Penstemon,  Toyon,  Mountain Mahogany,  and  Brickle Bush

all grown just across the creek by California Native Plant Society volunteers at Elderberry Farms.

Come see them grow!

These two worked long and hard installing protective cages for our young plants.
