Volunteer within Our Watershed

Are you looking to get your hands dirty and make a difference out on the creek? Join us for one of our habitat enhancement work days out in the field or for a nursery day within our Native Plant Nursery!

Putah Creek Council works closely with our partners to engage community members in ongoing restoration projects to help get plants in the ground and make a difference! To volunteer with us, all that you need to do is sign up for an event.

Habitat Enhancement Field Days

Our habitat enhancement events take place at various location sites throughout our watershed. If you’re looking to work with a team to give some love to the creek, these events are for you! The field days focus on planting, maintenance, irrigation, and anything else our partners may need help with! Putah Creek Council supplies everything a participant needs (including gloves) to positively impact these sites.

Depending on the site and the day, tasks may include: planting, weeding, trail building, erosion control, tree maintenance, pruning, or mulching. You can expect a bit of hardwork and to walk away with satisfaction that your morning contributed to a lasting impact for habitat!

Native Plant Nursery Work Days

Putah Creek Nursery is uniquely operated by volunteers, interns, staff, and other community members. Our nursery workdays are the perfect opportunity to learn nursery and local native plant knowledge, and get your hands dirty! No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn. Putah Creek Council supplies tools and gloves for each workday.

Nursery tasks include: seeding, seed collecting and processing, transplanting, cutting propagation, culling, weeding, or pruning.
