Park Volunteer Service Day

Nuevo and Robertson Parks

Saturday, March 24 8:45A - 1:00P

This community volunteer day is focused on planting and maintaining trees in North Sacramento (District 2) to ensure that native trees and plant species remain an integral part of the urban forest in Del Paso Heights. This effort intends to increase the biodiversity of the park ecology at Nuevo and Robertson Parks by recruiting at least 50 volunteers that live in North Sacramento, District 2. All are welcome to attend and local residents of North Sacramento are highly encouraged to join the Del Paso Heights Growers' Alliance. Our goal is to plant at least 25 trees at Robertson Park, maintain at least 25 trees at Nuevo Park, and establish a native plant garden near the children’s playground.

NeighborWoods Planting in Sunriver

Sunriver Park

Saturday, April 14 8:45A - 12:00P

The City of Rancho Cordova has prioritized increasing its tree canopy because trees provide wide-ranging benefits that directly and positively impact its residents. On April 14thwe will double last year’s tree planting successes by continuing the effort to strengthen the Sunriver community through planting trees.

Please arrive at 8:45 AM to check in so we can get started right away at 9 AM.


Urban Wood Rescue Grand Opening

The Depot Park

Sunday, April 29 1:00P - 4:00P

We love our "City of Trees" but what happens when urban trees are removed for reasons like disease or public safety? The unfortunate answer is oftentimes they are left at the dump to decompose. Instead of treating our trees like trash, Urban Wood Rescue salvages logs from recently removed trees and turns them into usable lumber. This way, our trees can live on in a new form and continue to provide beauty and benefits to our community. Attend our Grand Opening to learn more and for a chance to win a free live edge slab.
