Putah Creek Council, in partnership with the Cache Creek Conservancy and Yolo County Resource Conservation District, is hosting several special volunteer opportunities along Putah Creek’s neighboring creek, Cache Creek, in the months of November and December. The Putah and Cache Creek watersheds form a single bioregion, or area sharing similar geology, hydrology, flora, and fauna. The forests that grow along these streams support a high diversity of birds, mammals, and insects. Community members are invited to help plant native shrubs, vines, and herbaceous flowering plants to improve wildlife habitat within the forest along Cache Creek in Woodland. These plants, grown by volunteers in the Putah Creek nursery, will provide food and shelter to wildlife, help protect stream banks against erosion, and improve water quality. Volunteer opportunities at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve are scheduled for: ●     Sunday, Nov. 18 from 9:30 a.m. – noon ●     Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. ●     Sunday, Dec. 2 from 9:30 a.m. – noon ●     Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. Putah Creek Council will provide all the plants, tools, gloves, and other supplies. Please dress appropriately for the weather in clothes that can get dirty and wear closed-toe shoes. These are “rain or shine” events, and we will provide mud boots and ponchos if needed. For more details and to register in advance, please visit www.putahcreekcouncil.org, or call 530-795-3006.]]>
