Join the Cause - Fremont’s Habitat Restoration Days for Sabercat Creek
Saturday, January 14, 2017
Love nature and serving the community? Join the City of Fremont’s Environmental Services for a day of habitat restoration work on Sabercat Creek on Saturday, January 14 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Site 5 located along Becado Place in Fremont. Heavy rain 12 hours prior to or during will postpone the event.
Volunteers will assist with removing invasive plants, sheet mulching, and providing care for native plants. Planting additional native plants may also take place. This work will help increase native plant diversity, and improve food and shelter for wildlife. No experience is necessary. A habitat steward will guide you through the projects along Sabercat Creek in Sabercat Historical Park.
No experience is necessary. Volunteers of all ages are welcome, and a signed waiver form is required for each participant. Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Habitat stewards will guide you through the projects.
Come dressed for the weather and prepared to get dirty (sturdy, closed-toe shoes/boots, long pants, hat, sunscreen, and long-sleeved shirt are recommended). Bring a signed waiver form, a reusable water bottle, and community service hour forms, if applicable. We’ll provide tools, some gloves, and water to refill bottles. If you wish to bring your own gloves or tools, please label them.
