Bridging the Gap – A River Beautification Event
February 18 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Volunteer and make a difference in the San Lorenzo River ecosystem!
Join the Coastal Watershed Council, Yoso Wellness Spa, Hotel Paradox and Save Our Shores for our February River Health Day and plant and maintain native seedlings along the banks of the San Lorenzo River to increase biodiversity and revitalize the river ecosystem, and pick up trash and litter from the Riverwalk.
This event will kick off at Yoso Wellness Spa, located in the Galleria in downtown Santa Cruz. Volunteers can choose to join the restoration activities to plant new native plants, or join the cleanup team to pick up trash and litter from the Riverwalk. Following the activities at the San Lorenzo River, all volunteers are invited to Hotel Paradox to celebrate the day’s accomplishments poolside!
We recommend that all volunteers dress in comfortable gardening clothes, including long pants, socks and sturdy closed-toe shoes. Bring layers, sun protection and a reusable water bottle. Gloves, tools and light refreshments will be provided.
All ages and abilities welcome. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Call (831) 464 9200 x104, or email CWC River Ecologist Kaiya Giuliano-Monroy with any questions before the event. RSVP for this and other River Health Day events below!
