Join us on February 10th from 9:30AM-12:30PM to plant 1,000 wild rye plugs on the City of Woodland’s East Regional Pond banks. There is potential to birdwatch a variety of species while we work. This is a collaborative project between Putah Creek Council and the Yolo Resource Conservation District.
This point will take you to the paved parking lot and main entrance of the pond. For the primary plug planting, it will be a very short walk (less than a tenth of a mile) on a gravel road. If we want to or have time to do the mulefat pole cuttings, that spot is on the other side of the pond about a quarter mile from the first planting spot.
The banks of the pond where we’ll be planting will probably be pretty muddy and sticky, so people should wear boots and clothes they don’t mind getting dirty.
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed since the pond is considered special habitat for birds.
All necessary equipment, water, and snacks will be provided. This event is open to all community members regardless of skill and previous experience! We will teach you how to use the tools and the best method for planting. All ages are welcome, but a guardian is recommended for children under 13.
East Regional Pond is located off of Road 24 near I-5 in Woodland about 7 minutes from Costco and Starbucks.
