Winter planting for wild things Dec. 17

Saturday December 17, 9:00 - noon

Winter Planting for the Wild Things

Join a planting party to restore habitat and provide food and shelter for birds and other creatures, including the endangered California clapper rail. Help install hundreds of local native plants around West Stege Marsh, along the San Francisco Bay Trail in southern Richmond. Learn more about our Bay tidal wetlands and the history of the restoration efforts at this site.

Everyone is welcome, pre-registration is greatly appreciated but not necessary. Youth under 18 will need signed permission from a parent or guardian. Tools, gloves, boots, and light refreshments are provided, and if itís wet we have rain suits for all! Damp weather is great for planting, but heavy rain will cancel the activity.

To register and receive directions or for more information, email Bayshorestewards@thewatershedproject.org or call Martha Berthelsen at (510) 665-3689. Sponsored by the Watershed Project, an environmental education non-profit.

Location: The Watershed Project, 1327 South 46th St., Richmond Field Station #155, Richmond.

Run dates: 2005-12-04 - 2005-12-17
