WINTERS — Volunteers are being sought to plant drought-tolerant native plants along Putah Creek on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The Putah Creek Council is sponsoring the event from 9:30 a.m. to noon Jan. 20. Volunteers will meet at the Rotary Park gazebo, 201 Railroad Ave. in Winters and take car pools to the work site.
Registration is required and be done at www.putahcreekcouncil.org or by calling 795-3006.
An event press release said that Congress designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national day of service. The plantings along Putah Creek will provide wildlife habitat, control erosion and improve water quality.
Putah Creek forms the boundary between Solano and Yolo counties.
