Arbor Day Event at Benicia State Recreation Area

On October 17, the Benicia Tree Foundation led a tree planting project at Benicia State Recreation Area (BSRA) as part of the annual Benicia Arbor Day event. California State Parks hosted the event, working with Benicia Tree Foundation volunteers to plant twelve coast live oaks and California buckeyes just above the San Francisco Bay Trail/Bay Area Ridge Trail and the Forrest Deaner Native Plant Garden. The trees were seedlings grown from locally collected fruits.  Benicia Tree Foundation volunteers will return to the BSRA on December 5 to plant more trees in other areas of the park.
