Acterra is one of the Bay Areas most active conservation organizations. This month, In partnership with City of Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve, they are asking for residents of Palo Alto to join them to plant native seedlings along the shoreline of the Baylands.
Their goal is to plant “25,000 native species this season.” This endeavor will only be possible if the people of Palo Alto volunteer their time to help. The importance of this project is critical to increase endangered bird and wildlife habitat for species such as the “salt marsh harvest mouse and the California clapper rail”, according to Acterra. They will also need volunteers to help with general shoreline clean up, mulching, and watering.
