We finished mulching for the season!

I want to thank the fourteen volunteers who volunteered with us this past Saturday, January the 6th. We spread the last bit of mulch around our oak trees at the Stanley Reach. Spreading mulch is an effective way at reducing weeds, retaining soil moisture during our hot dry summers, and adding nutrients to the soil as the mulch biodegrades.

Arroyo Mocho at Stanley Reach Oak Mulching Part 2

We had an amazing volunteer event this past Saturday December 2nd. Eight stalwart volunteers showed up and mulched 500 feet of our oak woodland. We were also joined by a group of 25 boy scouts, Rotarians and parents; they planted 44 native plants and aided in spreading mulch . Thank you everyone! Your dedication to renewing local stream habitat is amazing!
