December 2018 On a rainy Saturday morning, eight families from Ms. Schafer's kindergarten class helped plant eight live oak saplings along the pedestrian trail through campus.  The trees were donated by the Willis Linn Jepson Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, who grew these trees from acorns the year before.

Henderson Fall Arbor Day 2018



January, 2013 Over two Saturdays volunteers planted 80 new trees around the playing field at Robert Semple Elementary School. We planted Coast Redwoods, Coast Live Oak, Incense Cedar, Canary Island Pine, Crepe Myrtle, Gingko Biloba and Chinese Pistache trees. Several first grade classes helped with the plantings as did teachers, parents, students, the Benicia Youth Commission, Girl Scouts and other community members.

Support for the project was received from California ReLeaf, CalFire, Organic Solutions and Devil Mountain Nursery.
