Community Volunteers are the Heart of our Work

June 18, 2016

Community volunteers are the heart of the work undertaken by the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the Bear River Habitat Trail in Plumas Lake is no exception. Construction began in July, 2015 and thanks to the hard work of community volunteers, more than 2,500 new native plants were installed this winter and spring.

One volunteer who has joined the effort is Ms. Sean Harrison who lives nearby. “ I wanted to serve my community while doing something I liked. Working with the land was a natural fit for me and the Sacramento Tree Foundation provided the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while participating in the Bear River Habitat Trail project.” she said.

With regular community workdays throughout summer and a second phase of planting scheduled for next fall and winter, more volunteers are encouraged to join the effort. “I have had a wonderful time working with the committed employees from the Sacramento Tree Foundation “ Sean says, “I’m looking forward to continuing my community service activities as a Sacramento Tree Foundation volunteer.”Thank you Sean for all your hard work! We look forward to seeing you at our summer workdays and for more planting in the mud next winter.
