Friends of Pinole Creek Watershed was awarded a habitat kit with 85 native plants from the Xerces Society to develop habitats that support monarchs and other pollinators. 

We will be planting in the Upper Watershed (a mile past Castro Ranch on Alhambra Valley Road) on Saturday, November 5th and are looking for volunteers to help plant 85 plants. Water and snacks provided. Kids are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a well-behaved adult. Due to parking, we will limit the group to 25; don’t miss out!
