Event description
Volunteer to reforest Folsom with native oaks

About this event

Trees grow healthy communities - help grow your urban forest! Join us to plant 290 native oak seedlings along a bike trail and adjacent to an open wetland space. Not only will these trees provide critical wildlife habitat, they will also shade the bike trail, clean the air, and make the space more beautiful for all to enjoy.

We provide all the necessary tools and supplies to plant trees. Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split up into groups and begin planting trees throughout the site.

Register now! The week before this event, we will send a logistics and directions email with detailed information about how to get to the site. You will receive this email ONLY if you are signed-up for this event.

Who should attend?

Anyone, but those who live or work nearby are especially encouraged to attend! This event is open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us and on-site training will be provided. Families with children are welcome.

Native plant lovers, birders, wildlife enthusiasts, and cyclists will love this opportunity to make a difference and help grow a thriving green space that benefits both the wildlife and the people who use this space.
