National Family Volunteer Day // Family River Health Day

November 23 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

family volunteer day
Join us on Nov. 23 and spend time with your family! Family Volunteer Day is a global day of service that celebrates the power of families who work together to support their communities and neighborhoods.
 
At the San Lorenzo River, you and your family are invited to join the Coastal Watershed Council to plant native species along the river to support birds, bugs, pollinators and a thriving river ecosystem. All ages and experiences are welcome.
This event will take place on the east bank of the San Lorenzo River downstream of the Soquel Avenue Bridge. We will meet along the Santa Cruz Riverwalk – look for our blue table! We highly recommend walking or biking to the event as there is limited parking in the area. Parking is available in the CWC parking lot (107 Dakota Ave) or across the river in downtown Santa Cruz. It is an easy walk along the Riverwalk from either parking location to the event location.

Gloves, tools and light refreshments provided. We recommend that all volunteers dress in comfortable gardening clothes, include long pants, socks and sturdy closed-toe shoes. Bring layers, sun protection and a reusable water bottle.

All ages and abilities welcome. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Call (831) 464 9200 x104 with any questions before the event.

 
The first 20 volunteers to register on CWC’s website will receive a free Family Volunteer Day t-shirt.

¡Sea voluntario y marca la diferencia en el ecosistema del Río San Lorenzo!

Durante el Dia de la Salud del Río, regaremos plantas nativas y eliminaremos plantas invasivas que se encuentran en la orilla del Río San Lorenzo para mejorar la biodiversidad y ayudar a las especies nativas.

El evento será en la orilla este del Río San Lorenzo, entre los puentes de las calles Soquel Ave. y Laurel St. Busca nuestra mesa! Sugerimos llegar caminando o en bicicleta al evento porque el estacionamiento es limitado. Hay estacionamiento disponible fuera de la oficina de CWC (107 Dakota Ave.) o detrás del restaurante Royal Taj Cuisine (270 Soquel Ave.); de ambos se puede caminar al sitio en donde estaremos trabajando. 

Guantes, herramientas, y bocadillos ligeros se proveerán. Sugerimos que todos los voluntarios vengan en ropa cómoda, incluyendo pantalones largos y zapatos cerrados. Traiga protección solar y una botella de agua reutilizable.

Todas edades y habilidades se invitan. Voluntarios bajo la edad de 18 tendrán que ser acompañados por un adulto.
