Hard Work Pays Off in Great Outcomes

Our corpsmembers accomplished an astounding amount of projects this year despite the various setbacks and pivots brought on by the pandemic. We continued to increase our fire fuel reduction work and worked with a variety of partners to keep the North Bay beautiful, accessible, and a safer place for us all.

Here are a few examples of what our crews accomplished last year. Our crews:

Converting Lawns with Marin Water

As California endures yet another drought of historic proportions, municipalities are finding innovative ways to incentivize reducing water use among residents. After the Marin County Board of Supervisors declared a local emergency in May, Marin Water—the water agency serving southern and central Marin—started a free sheet mulching program called “Mulch Madness.” This program invites residents to convert their irrigated (and very water-demanding) lawn to save thousands of gallons of water. Mulch Madness includes the delivery and installation of sheet mulching materials and permanently disabling existing lawn sprinklers.
 
The hard workers providing these services? Our very own crews! CCNB Natural Resources crew supervisors and corpsmembers received an extensive training from Daily Acts to learn about sheet mulching and the benefits of this technique, both for soil health and water conservation purposes. Our crews have converted lawns of all sizes across Marin County, mitigating water use during this drought and into the future. One square foot of lawn uses approximately 20 gallons of water every year, so every square foot we can convert counts!
How do you give?
