On Martin Luther King day, 170 volunteers came out to help plant oaks and other native landscaping at the St. Francis Assisi church in East Palo Alto. With guidance from SFEI, and funded through the Healthy Watersheds, Resilient Baylands project, the planting highlights the partnership between SFEI and the non-profit urban forestry group Canopy, based in Palo Alto. The project will serve as a demonstration of how biodiversity and resilience can be enhanced in urban areas through Re-oaking and other ecologically-focused interventions.
