Do you like getting dirty? Do you have a passion for gardening or native habitat restoration?

We've recently completed a project at the Blue Heron Trails Visitor Center at Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, but that doesn't mean the work is done! You can help us with general site care duties such as basic tree/shrub care, irrigation system maintenance, and weeding. These little guys need your help to thrive!

At the Sacramento Tree Foundation, our vision is to bring beautiful, tree-lined streets, shaded parks and schools, and full-canopy forests to the entire Sacramento community. YOU can be a part of this journey by joining us at Samuel Kennedy Elementary School as we plant 40+ new shade trees and fix up the school garden.


Arden Park NeighborWoods Planting

Arden Park neighborhood

Sunday, November 6 8:30A - 12:00P

Like many Sacramento neighborhoods, Arden Park faces a declining tree canopy due to an aging population of trees made up mostly of Modesto Ash. The forward thinking neighborhood, more than a decade ago, formed a group that created an annual Tree Planting Project to replace those trees and revitalize their community. This year we will need the assistance of our TREEmendous volunteers. Come enjoy your neighbors and help out the community.
