Public Lands Day: Earthworks and Planting at Madera Canyon

Posted on September 13, 2016 by Allegra Mount in Events, Volunteering

A group of volunteers takes a break from planting native pollinator-attracting plants to hear more about restoration.

Workday with Sky Island Alliance and the CNF: Earthworks and Plantings at Madera Canyon

September 24th, 8 am – 2pm in Madera Canyon

Join us on National Public Lands Day, Saturday September 24th from 8 am-2 pm to enhance natural conditions near the two new bridges in Madera Canyon and at a new interpretive area. Work is designed to prevent erosion from the construction site into Madera Creek, and to re-establish native vegetation on the site. We will be installing simple rock structures to slow the flow of water across the site and to create perfect spots for native plants to be installed. Work will be a combination of lifting, transporting and placing rocks into place, installing native plants, eradicating non-native plants and watering the plants that we installed last year. Volunteers do not need to have prior training to participate.

Sign up for Saturday, Sep 24th with Sky Island Alliance
