December is Environmental Heritage Month


Caring for California Natives

This month Outside the Box 925 asks you to take some time and talk to your families about the value of caring for our local native species.  These plants and animals provided sustenance, shelter and comfort for Native Calfornians for thousands of years. 

We can help care for them by taking time to appreciate their beauty, by removing invaders trying to occupy the same space and planting native plants, trees and bushes.

On December 7th, join the experts and plant natives in the Clayton Valley Drain. Learn more about how to appreciate and protect our local native plants. Please register to come help out!
