Restoration & Conservation
Planting Season is Upon Us!
The delayed rain this year also delayed our planting season, but now that the soil is a little wet, we can finally get plants out of the nursery and into the ground:
- We have been at Cunningham Marsh planting locally-collected native sedges and shrubs to restore the marsh and create habitat for the endangered Pitkin marsh lily.
- If you live in Rohnert Park, come check out our new plantings along Hinebaugh Creek in the K section where we are planting trees and shrubs to expand the riparian corridor along the creek.
- Next time you are in Santa Rosa, take a drive out Occidental Road past the Earle Baum Center, and keep an eye out for a new hedgerow.
These, and other planting projects create habitat for birds and wildlife and restore our essential wetland ecosystems. We're looking forward to seeing what species arrive this spring!
We hope we can help explorers of all ages find a way to stay connected to nature during this unusual time. Explore past webinars, try a fun activity, or download a free copy of one of our most popular publications. Start exploring!
