Sepulveda Basin Tree Planting Event
January 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
CNPS Student Advisers Richard Rachman and Gio Gomez are hosting a tree planting event near the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve. They are planting oak trees in order to boost the native plant population in an area that has notoriously non-native species. We hope you will join us during this Saturday event.
Some of the tasks include: shoveling dirt, transporting large amounts of water, handling cocoons used to plant the trees and working in potentially cold conditions. Shovels, gloves, and buckets will be provided. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring lunch, water, and a positive attitude! All participants will be required to sign a waiver upon arrival.
This event is supported by CNPS (California Native Plant Society) and other organizations including: National Park Service, Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve Steering Committee, Army Corp of Engineers, Bruin Audubon Society, San Fernando Valley Audubon Society, Friends of the LA River, Los Angeles Parks and Rec, and Tree People. This is a great opportunity to learn about what these agencies are doing in our community to help preserve our flora and fauna.
