Earth Day Celebration

Over 150 volunteers from our community pitched in on Saturday, April 21st at Promontory Park to plant 20 trees, and to spread 300 yards of bark in the beds throughout the park.  Trees were planted around the new bocce ball courts, around the softball fields, and on the slope near the spray park.  The CSD would like to thank all of the hard working volunteers who spent their day making El Dorado Hills a better place to live and play!

Archery Range Split-Rail Fence

A Community Partnership Project

Project complete!  Over 140 volunteers from the community pitched in to build the fence that now runs along the boundary of the El Dorado Hills archery range.  The CSD would like to especially thank the El Dorado Hills Fire Department, the El Dorado Hills Bowmen, Blue Shield of California, the Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills, Oak Ridge High School Interact Club, and the CSD Board of Directors for their generous support of this project.  The CSD would also like to congratulate the following Eagle Scout candidates who completed their Eagle Scout projects by each organizing and building at least 200 feet of fencing: Aldo Ramirez, Jacob Bassett, Brenden Groess, Tyler Kramer, Ethan Nisbet, and Jacob Lay.  (Picture below contributed by Julie Samrick, Staff Writer for the Mountain Democrat and Village Life.)
