Come along on our adventures and get to know us a little better.
Thanks to the Sacramento Tree Foundation, SMUD, The Growing Company, and all our community volunteers, the Sacramento SPCA now has a beautiful, shady place to walk the dogs they're sheltering. Building it was a blast too!
We recently had two events in South Sacramento: one at Pollock Ranch Park on August 19thand the other at Nielsen Park on August 26th. With great volunteer turnouts at both events, we were able to mulch about 130 trees. We also removed trash from the parks, including candy wrappers, water bottles and even a motorcycle battery.
As a South Sacramento resident, this position was a perfect fit for me when I was looking to leave government service and return back the non-profit world. I have been a South Sacramento resident for over 25 years and consider myself a native.
Trees have always been a wonder to me. I can vividly remember laying beneath the shade of my favorite tree in a grassy park in the Bay Area and looking up at the branches and leaves swaying in the breeze. I remember thinking that this tree had a past. I would day-dream about the history it might have seen. Was it around when jazz was in full swing in the 1920's? Or, was it even around when Lewis and Clark undertook their expeditions?
We could not do our good deeds without support from our funders
