You can help improve habitat for native insects, birds, fish and other animals by volunteering with Acterra in restoring native plants along San Fransquito Creek in Menlo Park.
The first creek side planting is on Saturday, November 9, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm at the intersection of Pope St. and Woodland Ave. After completing planting at this site, volunteers will move one block downstream toward Palo Alto to continue restoration activities.
Volunteers are asked to bring reusable water bottles and dress for outdoor work (sturdy shoes and long pants are recommended). Acterra will provide gloves and tools. Minors under 18 must bring a waiver form signed by a parent/guardian.
Registration is required. Space is limited. For additional details or to register for this event, please call (650) 962-9876 x347 or register online. This event is co-sponsored by the City of Menlo Park and the Acterra Stewardship Program.
