Habitat Restoration: Saplings and Salmon

Event date: January 25, 2020
Event Time: 09:00 AM - 02:00 PM
Location:
Corte Madera, CA 94925
Description:
Join us in Lagunitas Creek to enhance salmon habitat by planting native trees!

The goal of this event is to increase native tree cover above a newly created flood plain channel to provide shade and habitat for endangered Coho salmon which use our watershed to spawn. Increased tree cover will keep stream temperatures cool and provide lots of insects for young salmon to prey upon, while tree roots will provide sanctuary from fast-flowing water.

We’ll be planting rain or shine, so bring layers and be prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Be sure to wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes or rain boots and bring lots of water. This event is kid-friendly and open to everyone. Free lunch and coffee will be provided. RSVP and send any questions to volunteerprogram@marinwater.org.
