When: Saturday, December 8th from 9am – Noon

Giving Natives a Chance began as a joint effort between the Contra Costa County Flood Control District and the Restoration Trust to see if given a proper chance, native plants such as creeping wild rye, Santa Barbara sedge, and Baltic rush could outcompete invasive species in our creeks. Event activities include weeding, trash pick-up, and of course, planting. Light refreshments and lunch will be provided to volunteers. To register for this event, please go to:

Bring gloves, hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and water.
