WATSONVILLE — For visitors to Ramsay Park who are looking for a spot to sit down and avoid the constant beating down of the sun’s rays, finding a spot of shade can be a challenge.
On Saturday, an army of volunteers plans to change that.
The annual World Wetlands Day will kick off the Watsonville Urban Forest Revitalization Project, which, over a two-year period, will add 300 trees and hundreds of drought-tolerant native shrubs at 10 park sites and three street corridors.
