Annual Native plant sale

Submitted By Caren Minch

The Fremont Visitor Center will be hosting two events on Saturday, October 10: the Annual Native Plant Sale and the Amazing Refuge Race. The Plant Sale is the place to be, whether you are looking to re-landscape your yard with drought-resistant plants, or you want to create habitat for neighborhood birds and butterflies. The sale will be held from 1 p.m-4 p.m.

In the Amazing Refuge Race, teams of five will "race" to the coordinates given on their GPS units and perform specific tasks. Once the tasks are completed, teams will be given another set of coordinates. The first team to the finish line wins! Teams may use their own GPS unit, or borrow one from REI Outdoor School at the refuge. You may form your own teams or one can be assigned to you. For more information, log on to http://www.fws.gov/desfbay, or call Carmen at (510) 377-9229. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Call (510) 745-8695 to register for free.
