About River Health Day

Volunteer and make a difference in the San Lorenzo River ecosystem! Every second Saturday of the month you can join the Coastal Watershed Council in improving habitat conditions along the lower San Lorenzo River.

During the summer River Health Days, we will be watering beneficial native seedlings and removing invasive plants along the banks of the San Lorenzo River to improve biodiversity and habitat complexity.

These events will take place on the east bank of the San Lorenzo River downstream of the Soquel Avenue Bridge. We will meet along the Santa Cruz Riverwalk – look for the blue CWC table! We highly recommend walking or biking to the event as there is limited parking in the area. Parking is available in the CWC parking lot (107 Dakota Ave.) or behind the Royal Taj India Cuisine restaurant (270 Soquel Ave.).

Gloves, tools and light refreshments provided. We recommend that all volunteers dress in comfortable gardening clothes, include long pants, socks and sturdy closed-toe shoes. Bring layers, sun protection and a reusable water bottle.

All ages and abilities welcome. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
