NeighborWoods Planting at Luther Burbank High School

Luther Burbank High School, Sacramento

Saturday, October 28 9:00A - 1:00P

Join the Sacramento Tree Foundation as we spend a beautiful fall morning completing our first phase of canopying the campus of Luther Burbank High School during National NeighborWoods Month. Fall is the perfect time to fill the campus with 40 more shade trees and mulch its existing trees so they remain strong, vibrant, and healthy for years to come. Luther Burbank High School students and faculty are encouraged to participate too.


Workday at the Bear River Habitat Trail

Join the Sacramento Tree Foundation in planting, weeding, and mulching the thousands of native plants our volunteers have planted along the Bear River Habitat Trail in Yuba County since January 2016.
