Community Planting Days

 The Yolo County RCD and the Cache Creek Conservancy are holding two community planting days in January at Capay Open Space Park. We will be planting native grasses and flowering plants in areas along the creek at the Park.  This is a great opportunity to learn about native plants, to meet new friends, and to enjoy the park, which has wildlife, views and is a peaceful place to visit. 


Tools and gloves will be provided. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes. Please bring your own water bottle.
