CANCELLED – Tree Planting at Dos Rios Ranch
February 23 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Our planting site is underwater! Due to recent storms, the tree planting at Dos Rios Ranch is cancelled. This is one of the challenges of floodplain restoration, and we appreciate your flexibility. We will host another tree planting event in March. Check our website and Facebook frequently for updates.
Join us Saturday February 23rd at our Dos Rios Ranch restoration site to plant trees along the Tuolumne River!
Bring gloves, shovels, water bottle if you have them – limited supplies will be available.
Community restoration work days such as this are a great opportunity for families to both contribute to this unique project while getting a “sneak peek” of what this property is going to look like when completed. It’s also a fun way for students and service groups to fulfill community service commitments.
Dos Rios Ranch is a spectacular property located at the confluence of the Tuolumne and San Joaquin rivers. Since 2006, we have been working with River Partners and habitat restoration specialists to engage community members in the restoration of this local gem. Thanks to volunteers like you, we have:
- restored over 800 acres of this 2,100-acre property
- collected tons of seeds and cuttings for future plantings
- removed invasive species from the 600 acre “bowl” in the middle of the property
- demolished old buildings to make room for more native habitat
When completed, this project will provide multiple benefits including improved outdoor recreational and educational opportunities, restored habitat for endangered fish an wildlife and improved flood control and groundwater recharge.
Location Details: The Dos Rios Ranch entrance is marked by a white fence and red gate. Signs will be posted at entrance as well as at Shiloh/Grayson and Shiloh/Paradise intersections.
Volunteers must complete a liability release form. If you are under 18 and not accompanied by an adult please request the form in advance and bring it completed to the event.
