This community volunteer day is focused on planting and maintaining trees in North Sacramento (District 2) to ensure that native trees and plant species remain an integral part of the urban forest in Del Paso Heights. This effort intends to increase the biodiversity of the park ecology at Nuevo and Robertson Parks by recruiting at least 50 volunteers that live in North Sacramento, District 2. All are welcome to attend and local residents of North Sacramento are highly encouraged to join the Del Paso Heights Growers' Alliance. Our goal is to plant at least 25 trees at Robertson Park, maintain at least 25 trees at Nuevo Park, and establish a native plant garden near the children’s playground.
The Del Paso Heights Growers' Alliance is committed to urban greening efforts because of their importance in improving the quality of life factors that significantly impact under-served communities.The partnership includes Pacific Housing Inc., City of Sacramento Parks and Recreation Department, District 2 Parks and Recreation Commission, Sacramento Tree Foundation, Green Technical Education, and Employment and Mutual Assistance Network of Del Paso Heights. Funding for this California Climate Investments grant project has been provided through California ReLeaf and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), Urban and Community Forestry Program.
Please bring a water bottles, sun screen, a hat, and wear closed toed shoes. Snacks will be provided!
