Bear River Habitat Trail, Yuba County
Saturday, July 8 8:30A - 11:30A
Join us this summer as we gather on the second Saturday of each month to pull weeds, repair plant protection materials, and perform other ongoing maintenance to care for the Bear River Habitat Trail. With your help, the 5,000 new plants along the trail will thrive as we continue to build this new public open space area for the Plumas Lake community's residents and wildlife.

Sacramento’s elm trees are disappearing! Join the Sacramento Tree Foundation and the City of Sacramento in monitoring our remaining public elms for the problematic Dutch elm disease (DED), a fungal disease with no known cure that has taken the lives of thousands of elms around Sacramento since the 1990s. DED-infected trees will be removed by the City to prevent the further spread of this unwelcome pest. This training will give you the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to monitor elms for DED symptoms using your mobile device. STEP Citizen Scientists commit to monitoring selected elm trees three times between May and October.
