Did you know that the City of Santa Cruz received a grant to plant 500 trees throughout Santa Cruz this year?
Thanks to volunteers and staff from the Coastal Watershed Council, Patagonia Santa Cruz Outlet and City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation, 20 sycamore and maple trees along the Santa Cruz Riverwalk between Soquel Avenue Bridge and the Chinatown Bridge across the street from Trader Joe’s. Canopy trees are crucial for bird habitat along the river and makes the Riverwalk better for people too. Thanks to everyone who made it happen! Take a look at the new native maple and sycamores the next time you visit your favorite river!
