The community is invited to help plants trees in Arroyo Park in Rancho Santa Fe on Saturday, Jan. 23, from 9 am to 12 pm. The event is sponsored by the RSF Association Committee on the Natural Environment (CONE), the nonprofit Tree San Diego organization and the Stanford Club of San Diego.
“I'm really looking forward to the community tree planning event sponsored by the Association along with Tree San Diego and the Stanford Club on January 23. It will be great fun to see people of all ages enjoying the digging, planting and socializing,” said Bill Beckman, CONE Chairman.
“In addition, an event like this emphasizes how important it is to keep planting trees in our community, especially with the changes in climate we are already experiencing. All great communities are defined in part by their trees. Our forest is a precious and important part of Rancho Santa Fe,” Beckman said.
Families and residents of all ages are invited to the event, which includes a tree planting demonstration at 9:30am followed by planting of 25 native trees. Gardening gloves and a light breakfast will be provided. Volunteers are asked to wear hats and dress for gardening. Representatives from Tree San Diego and CONE will be on hand to answer questions. The event will be held rain or shine.
To participate, volunteers should RSVP by Jan. 21 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and indicate the number of people attending.
