Thank You Volunteers!

A big THANK YOU to the volunteers who attended both tree planting events this winter. Thanks to you, nearly three hundred native trees were added to the burned riparian corridor along Putah Creek. As always, Putah Creek Trout is humbled by the amazing stewardship of our community members. Thank you!

Putah Creek Tree Planting Event, Round 2

Friends:
Following an initial round of tree planting in December, we are now organizing a secondIMG_4212
event to finish our tree planting for the winter. On Sunday, March 4th at 9am, we will be planting and caging cottonwoods, sycamores, willows, and alders on the island at Fishing Access #5 (map: https://goo.gl/maps/eJtBDMsNn4C2). We are hoping for at least 20 volunteers to make short work of the project. We should be done before lunchtime, leaving plenty of time to enjoy a spring afternoon on the Creek.
Please bring gloves and waders. In addition, spades, ground shovels, and digging bars will be most helpful for planting. Pliers, sledgehammers, and post-drivers will be helpful for placing cages.
Snacks, water, and celebratory beverages will be provided. We’re counting on seeing you there!

Planting The New Fly Harvesters

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAcross the last four years, wildfires have substantially impacted the native riparian vegetation on Putah Creek. In some areas, non-native vegetation, like Himalayan blackberry, has limited the natural regeneration of native trees. The loss of the riparian overstory would have a long-term impact on the riparian ecosystem, including the aquatic insect and trout population.

In concert with blackberry control efforts by Solano County Water Agency, Putah Creek Trout is organizing a tree planting event on Saturday, December 2 at 9am. We will be planting and caging cottonwoods, sycamores, willows, and alders on the island at Fishing Access #5 (map: https://goo.gl/maps/eJtBDMsNn4C2). We are hoping for at least 20 volunteers to make short work of the project. With 20 volunteers, we should be done by lunchtime.

Please bring gloves and waders. In addition, spades, ground shovels, and digging bars will be helpful for planting. Pliers, sledgehammers, and post-drivers will be helpful for placing cages.
Snacks, water, and celebratory beverages will be provided. Best of all, you’ll have a personal connection to the trees that will harvest your flies from future errant casts!
Please let us know if you’ll be there:
Hope to see you there.
