Volunteers team with Public Works for Bushy Dell Creek planting

Volunteers Sara Gaucher and Tom Kelly planting in Bushy Dell Creek

On Thursday, March 15, 10 volunteers — including five Park Commissioners — gathered with Public Works staff to plant 40 riparian plants along the creek, donated by Watershed Nursery in Richmond. The group planted five different species, all of which are suited to thrive in the Bushy Dell Creek watershed:

  • California Box Elder (Acer negundo var. californicum)
  • Buttonwillow (Cephalanthus occidentalis var. californica)
  • California Wild Rose (Rosa californica)
  • White Alder (Alnus rhombifolia)
  • Oregon Ash (Fraxinus latifolia)
Many (but not all!) of the volunteers. From left to right: Tom Kelly, Jane Kelly, Park Commission Vice-Chair Kimberly Moses, Park Commissioner Arden Hall, Sara Gaucher, Parks & Project Manager Nancy Kent, Park Commissioner Dave Johnson, Tom Gandesbery

The effort was coordinated by Park Commission Vice-Chair Kimberly Moses and Parks & Project Manager Nancy Kent.
