Pollination sensation

Pollination sensation

Summertime is peak pollinator season as hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects are out in full force gathering pollen and nectar for their nests. California native plants in particular provide an excellent, high-nutrient source of food for not just the European honeybees but for our native birds and pollinators. Join our tour in the California Native Plant Demonstration Garden and learn how to garden for pollinators with our resilient, drought-tolerant summer blooming natives that continue to bring beauty into the garden even during the hottest months of the year. Sunday, June 26, 2016 10:00 a.m. Sacramento Old City Cemetery.

Sutter’s Fort Calls Out for Volunteers

Do you have an interest in Sacramento’s early history? Do you get excited at the idea of recreating pioneer activities like churning butter, making barrels or dressing in period attire? If so, volunteering at Sacramento’s iconic Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) may be just right for you. A new session of docent training classes will soon be available for those interested in helping to interpret pioneer California history to the public. To find out more information and meet current docents, a special Volunteer Open House is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fort located at 2701 L Street in Sacramento.
