Tree Planting at Putah Creek Council Headquarters
Join Putah Creek Council and our partners at the Solano County Water Agency in planting trees along Putah Creek in Putah Creek Council’s headquarters. After the LNU Lightning Complex Fire, many trees at Putah Creek Council’s headquarters were burned. We will be planting trees and shrubs along Putah Creek to help revegetate post-fire. Native plants and trees improve water quality, habitat for birds, small mammals, and beneficial insects, and help prevent soil erosion. Come spend a morning with the trees!
