volunteerThe Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County (RCDSCC) is looking for volunteers to help out on periodic field work days.  Volunteer duties are primarily field work aimed at removing exotic invasive species followed by revegetation with native plants and possibly helping with our outreach and education efforts.  This would be a great way for those interested in the environmental conservation and education fields to get real-world, hands-on experience.  It is also a great way for a member of the community to donate their time and energy towards improving their environment.

See the full Volunteers to Save Soquel Creek page to submit a volunteer application and more information or for more information please contact the RCDSCC, Nicolas Viveros (This email address is being protected from spambots.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 

The Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County (RCD) and the Soquel Creek Water District have designed an innovated water conservation and green stormwater demonstration project for the Soquel Creek Water District headquarters. The project has been entered into the Intelligent Use of Water Awards contest through RainBird, who will award $10,000 to the project that gets the most votes! This is a contest that allows the public to vote on community projects around the world until March 22, 2011 (World Water Day). Its online voting just like American Idol. If you’d like to support the project with your daily vote, please go to www.iuowawards.com and search for the project in Soquel. The money will help pay for the redesign of the landscaping around the Soquel Creek Water District’s headquarters to be an example of water-smart landscape design with emphasis on keeping the stormwater on site, harvesting rainwater and using plants and groupings that are drought tolerant. Although we may not win (global competition), we’ll see if others are as excited as we are by the number of votes we get.
