Stick it to the plant flags
Wed, February 15, 9:00 am 
River Parkway Trust Headquarters Building Conference Room 

In preparation for the next River Stewards planting day, we are looking for volunteers to help create plant flags. This volunteer job includes placing labels on pin flags and organizing the flags. This is an indoor volunteer opportunity. 

The flags you help create will mark the planting location for thousands of native plants at Spano River Ranch.  Your help now will contribute to restoring wildlife habitat on site.

February River Stewards Planting Day 
Sat, February 18, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm 
Spano River Ranch 

Come get your hands dirty by helping restore wildlife habitat at Spano River Ranch. During the workday we will plant 1,000 native plants around a large pond on site. This is a "drop in" opportunity and all tools are provided. Groups and families are welcome to join in the fun. 

This is a great opportunity to get outside and help create the San Joaquin River Parkway.
