BLM Colorado River District and Yuma Field Office personnel will host a volunteer treeplanting opportunity from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 20, 2013, in an ongoing restoration site adjacent to Betty's Kitchen Watchable Wildlife Area (Betty's Kitchen) approximately 8 miles northeast of Yuma. Volunteers will be planting 2,500 lower Colorado River cottonwood trees. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Betty's Kitchen parking lot. If you are coming from Quartzsite, take U.S. Highway 95 south, turn right on Avenue 7E, and continue on the paved road for 7 miles.
