Adobe Springs & Chico Road Planting Projects

In 2010, ANTA planted valley oaks, sycamores, and a variety of native shrubs, including ceanothus, cream bush, mock orange, and manzanita, at the Adobe Springs Preserve (not open to the public except during docent –led hikes and on volunteer work days). These trees are and other plantings are regularly maintained during ALPS workdays, and the trees are becoming well-established.

In 2011, additional plantings were installed along Chico Road and Traffic Way, in open spaces near the railroad tracks. Plantings included a variety of native shrubs and trees, and the CCC assisted with installation and maintenance.

In March 2018, ALPS hosted the local Cub Scout troop as they celebrated Arbor Day with the planting of seven Valley Oak trees.  A great day to plant trees!
