DiRT Day: Curry Canyon Ranch Water Crew

Saturday, July 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

Join our watering crew and be a part of our 10,000 Trees and Plants Project and Climate Action Plan goals!

Enjoy the beauty of Mount Diablo’s foothills as we fight impacts of climate change by protecting tree seedlings around Curry Canyon Ranch that will eventually replace the heritage oaks we see around the property today. So far we’ve protected over 400 tree seedlings around the valley! In order to help increase survival rates, we water each seedling each month. Watering is the vital next step to this restoration project and we need your help!

Please note: Watering involves walking on uneven and sloped terrain while holding 1-3 gallon jugs of water to nourish seedlings.

Participants will be notified in the event of cancellation due to extreme weather conditions. An AQI of 150 or above automatically cancels the workday.

Leader: Haley Sutton, Land Stewardship Associate, Save Mount Diablo

Meet: Curry Canyon Ranch – address and directions will be provided after registration a few days before the scheduled event.

What to Bring: Water bottle, sturdy shoes, comfy long work pants, sun protection (i.e. hat, sunscreen), face covering, and work gloves if you have them. Please be prepared to walk through tall grass.

We are also looking for more watering jugs: if you have empty and clean 1-3 gallon milk jugs, detergent bottles, or cat litter bottles, we will happily take them!
