Starting Saplings

Michael Smits uses his mouth to hold gardening staples while he shapes wire mesh to protect saplings from animal pests at Spring Pond. Volunteers and city employees planted 50 trees of 10 different native and adaptive species.


Volunteers plant Flameleaf Sumac and Western soapberry saplings.

Eric Weeks, Michael Smits and Naomi Cano stand by with buckets as Donna Browning moves mulch into a wheelbarrow.
