What’s New at wca

The Sacramento community came together early on a Saturday morning to plant 21 trees at the property surrounding the WCA facility. Thanks is not enough for all the time and energy given by the caring volunteers, donors and staff to make this happen! You changed the world, made memories and planted a legacy for the future. These drought-tolerant young trees will provide additional habitat, a windbreak, and most excitingly, set the stage for a future outdoor education area!

We would like to give a HUGE thank you to Rick Reed who conceived of and spearheaded the project. We would also like to thank the following donors:
