Plant Trees on the Dish Hill

Join us to plant California native trees along a riparian corridor on the dish hill. It's a chance to add trees along a recreational route enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Volunteers make new friends, learn about local eco-systems, enjoy the out-of-doors, exercise, and work for common good.

If you want to plant with us, we ask that you commit to at least one watering session. These take place one weekday evening per week from May through October. Only by caring for young trees until they become established do we make planting a meaningful act.
