Friends, Fun and Food at Park Solano on October 19th

October 3, 2019

Plans are proceeding with the Park Solano tree planting project.  Volunteers are requested to arrive at the park at 9:00 AM, which is located at the intersection of Hastings Drive and Solano Drive.  The morning's activities will start with welcoming comments from Supervisor Monica Brown and Mayor Elizabeth Patterson.  This will be followed with a demonstration by staff from the City Parks and Community Services Department on how to plant a tree.  After receiving this instruction, tree planting can begin.   A tree-related scavenger hunt is planned after the tree planting which will include some prizes.  Leaf rubbings and a tour of the trees in the park is also planned.  The event will end with lunch in the park.

If you wish to volunteer for this project, please register here on the Benicia Tree Foundation website.  Bring a completed and signed liability waiver form (click here for a copy) Wear closed-toe shoes and bring gloves if you have them.  Tools and instruction will be provided.  The event is kid-friendly, but volunteers under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
