Francesca Terrace Park at 698 Hillcrest Avenue will be the site of Benicia's Fall Arbor Day celebration on October 24, beginning at 9 AM.  Twenty volunteers are needed.  Ten volunteers will be planting 10 trees and ten volunteers will be spreading mulch along the park's border with the Valero pipeline where 10 trees were planted in 2018.  The event will end no later than noon.

Attendance limited to 20 volunteers to allow for social distancing. To help us track attendance, we ask volunteers to register at www.beniciatrees.org/volunteer/opportunities, or leave their contact information at info@beniciatrees.org or 707-745-4546.  A City liability waiver form must be completed and is available here.

Additional saftey measure for this event include:

  • All volunteers must wear a face mask when maintaining a physical distance of six feet from persons who are not members of the same household or residence is not feasible;
