Habitat Restoration: Saplings & Salmon
Saturday, March 30, 2019
Join us in Lagunitas Creek to enhance salmon habitat by planting native trees! We will be planting ash, alder, bay, and buckeye saplings on National Park Service land in a stretch of Lagunitas Creek that MMWD has been working to enhance for the past year. The goal of this event is to increase native tree cover above a newly-created flood plain channel to provide shade and habitat for endangered Coho salmon which use our watershed to spawn. Increased tree cover will keep stream temperatures cool and provide lots of insects for young salmon to prey upon while tree roots will provide sanctuary from fast-flowing water.
We’ll be out planting rain or shine, so bring layers and be prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Be sure to wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes or rain boots and bring lots of water. This event is kid-friendly and open to everyone.
Free lunch and coffee will be provided! RSVP and send any questions to email@example.com.
