Gardening Angels help community clean up River Center

Nov 12, 2015 08:42PM, Published by Kevin, Categories: Today in this issue, Spotlight




The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust recently hosted a special group of locals for a day of volunteering.

The Gardening Angels program provides an opportunity for members of the community to assist with picking up trash, pruning plants along the river and otherwise maintaining the river and the riverbank. 

The Parkway and Conservation Trust’s volunteer day included picking up downed palm fronds, weeding flowerbeds and trimming trees and vines. 

“Those of us who volunteered cleaned up the River Center, where they have weddings and events,” said Tania Kasparian-Herroz, who joined several members of Central California Life’s staff during the Day of Volunteering. “We touched it up, cleaned it up and made everything look nice.”

The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust works to restore stream-side forests and habitats for wildlife that live in and along the river, teach members of the community about the importance of the river to the area, and provides recreation opportunities to locals who want to experience the great outdoors along the riverbank.
