Acorn Harvesters Needed

The Sacramento Tree Foundation is recruiting acorn Harvesters for our fall 2014 Acorn Harvest. The Sacramento Tree Foundation is committed to enhancing the natural heritage of the Sacramento region by growing locally adapted, genetically appropriate native trees. Training is provided to help volunteers identify, collect and record 500 viable acorns (about 2 gallons worth). From October to December, 7,000- 15,000 acorns will be collected.  Training class takes place at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center,  Saturday, September 27 10:00am – 12:00.

Kick'n it for the Trees

Kick'n it for the Trees

It’s no accident that Sacramento is known as “The City of Trees.” Most of the trees that line our streets, decorate our parks, and provide blissful reprieve from our summer sun were planted by someone. For over 150 years, the people of Sacramento have planted and loved the city’s trees – making our urban forest one of the Top 10 in the U.S. And while planting trees can be arduous work with all the dirt and shovels, there’s a new way to help make sure that Sacramento stays in the shade for many summers to come.
