Doheny State Beach park officials and the Interpretive Association are seeking volunteers to help plant trees at the park, Saturday, November 3 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The native trees and shrubs were obtained via a $10,000 Odwalla Adopt-a-Tree grant won by the park in May and will replace non-native eucalyptus trees removed due to old age and disease or damaged by winter storms.
“Give yourself the future gift of looking at this replanted area and thinking, ‘I was a part of that. Those are my trees!’” said park naturalist Vicki Wiker.
Volunteers should bring work gloves and a shovel or spade and meet at Doheny State Beach, 25300 Dana Point Harbor Drive, picnic site A.
Water, coffee and treats will be provided.
Planting and weeding will be done in the park’s North Creek area.
