Grab your wheelbarrow and join the after-work mulching party at McKinley Park. Volunteers are needed to help care for the park by applying mulch rings around the park trees. Why mulch? The wood chips help to protect the trees from lawn care machines, hold in moisture, fight weeds and keep the roots cool.
If you don’t have a wheelbarrow, just show up! The Sacramento Tree Foundation will have extra wheelbarrows, gloves and rakes. Meet at the Shepard Garden and Art Center.
The event is supported by the City of Sacramento Parks and Recreation Department and the Sacramento Tree Foundation. Mulch is provided by the City of Sacramento Urban Forestry Service. Children of all ages welcome to participate.
