Let's plant some trees!
When we had our crowdfunding we offered to plant trees for people. We donated the money for those trees to be planted months ago, but we wanted to get our hands dirty too. We are going to be working the SD River Park Foundations Native Tree and Shrub Planting on November 19th from 10 am - 1 pm. This event is part of a larger restoration effort at Boulder Creek Preserve, and we'd love for you to join us. We'll bring donuts and coffee for anyone who wants to carpool with us out to Descanso. Maybe a stop by Alpine Brewing on the way home?
Contact us thru Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to carpool out or have questions. This is a SD River Park Event, and we're stoked to be invited along. If you say you're going we'll contact you to confirm so we can RSVP an appropriate number closer to 11/19. Thanks everyone.
Some Tips from SDRPF for planting day!
- Wear layers! Long pants and sleeves are highly recommended due to the potential for quick weather change. A hat, sunscreen, or any other types of sun protection are also recommended for all of our outdoor events.

- We will provide all tools and supplies for you to borrow, but if you have a favorite pair of work gloves, please feel free to bring them.
- In order to reduce single-use plastics, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle with water to drink. If you do not have a reusable water bottle, disposable water bottles will be provided on site.

- There will be a portable restroom on site
