January River Stewards Volunteer Event

Come help the River Parkway Trust and our AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Program Members, Lauren & Dominic, remove the invasive plant, scarlet wisteria, from the San Joaquin River. Invasive weeds can be very detrimental to our natural environments through crowding out native plants, reducing diversity, requiring additional water, and providing lesser quality habitat. Additionally we'll be planting cuttings of Cottonwood trees and three species of Willow. This event will take place at the Spano River Ranch in north Fresno and will run from 9:00am until 1:00pm. This event is suitable for all ages, all equipment is provided, and light refreshments will be served towards the end of the event.

Volunteers should dress appropriately for the weather, wear closed-toe shoes, and bring a refillable water bottle along with any snacks they may want.

Volunteers will meet at gate to the Spano River Ranch near highway 41 in North Fresno.

There is currently construction taking place in front of the property gate that could still be ongoing during the day of the event. In this case please use the following alternate directions:
