Join Parks staff as we enhance Walnut Creek Wetland Park and the greenway near Apollo Heights by planting new trees and by removing litter.

Duties:
Volunteers will help dig holes and install new trees in designated locations. This project will also involve removing litter from the area.

Impact:
We will be helping to restore the native tree population in the area, and this will provide a healthy habitat for native wildlife. Removing litter also contributes to creating a healthy ecosystem.
