On Saturday, January 20, 2018, some 8 hard working souls (5 of which are Rotarians) showed up at the behest of our president, Dick Bauer, to plant 20 (twenty) Oak trees at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael.
It seems that, in this particular area of the park, Oak trees were dying – probably due to shifting of underground water from the American River and new trees needed to be planted. We started at a little after 9 a.m. and after instructions from Mary Maret, Nature Resource person, we got after the planting which took a couple of hours. Satisfied in our efforts, we happily went on to other things on a nice, but cold, Saturday. More pics below:
