Planting Day at Kingman Hall

February 22, 2024

Early Saturday, February 17th morning, with rain lightly falling, the Strawberry Creek Restoration Program (SCRP) interns trekked to Kingman Hall, a Berkeley Student Cooperative, to help with a native planting day hosted by Eytan Stanton and Ellie Reiff of Kingman Hall Creek Restoration (KHCR). KHCR is a student-led effort started in 2023 to restore the 100 foot section of Strawberry Creek that runs through Kingman Hall.  Restoration activites have included stabilizing the failing banks and increasing native biodiversity. The SCRP interns were joined by other restoration and native plant experts from around the Bay, and everyone had a wonderful time planting natives, getting muddy, and giving back to the land. KHCR is a fantastic and impactful project, and building the connection between SCRP, KHCR, and other restoration groups was meaningful and unforgettable.
