River Health Day – Postponed
October 13, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
This event has been postponed. Please join us on November 10 for the next River Health Day.
Make a difference in the lower San Lorenzo River ecosystem by volunteering with a Coastal Watershed Council’s River Health Day. Volunteer and help remove invasive ice plant growing along the banks of the San Lorenzo River. Ice plant takes over the riverbank, stops other plants from growing and as a result limits biodiversity in the river ecosystem. You can stop the spread of ice plant and create space for helpful river plants to grow.
We recommend that all volunteers dress in comfortable gardening clothes, include long pants, socks and sturdy shoes. Bring sun protection and a reusable water bottle. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Parking is available on Front Street.
This event will take place on the west bank of the San Lorenzo River upstream of the Laurel Street Bridge. Meet here at the Santa Cruz Riverwalk behind the Sherwin Williams building located at 408 Front St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
Call (831) 464 9200 with any questions before the event.
