East Sacramento Neighbors Seek Solutions to Neighborhood Crime

images-1After Judy McClaver was attacked in McKinley Park a slew of neighbors contacted East Sacramento Preservation asking how to help. I’m happy to report that East Sacramento neighbor Leanne Mack is organizing an East Sac meeting with Nextdoor.com and the Sacramento Police Department to do a large-group training on how to start a Neighborhood Watch program in connection with city police. You can contact ESP and we’ll pass the information on to Leanne, or you can go on to Nextdoor and join her group East Sac Neighborhood Watch. The meeting is tentatively set for Aug 27 or 28th. Here’s Leanne’s email if you want to contact her directly.Eastsacpetpals@comcast.net

While this is not a solution to illegal camping or crime issues in the parks, it is a start. Starting a Watch Group is not hard and it’s a great way to meet your neighbors. Also, join Nextdoor.com com. Your neighbors through out East Sac are waiting to talk with you!

East Sacramento McKinley Park Trees — Tree Key and Event

Unknown-1McKinley Park Tree Tour

Below is tour information and the tree key for the park.

Sure, you might appreciate the beauty of the trees in McKinley Park, but how much do you know about them, really? To learn more, stop by the parking lot near the Shepard Garden and Arts Center to take a tour of the park from 6:30-8pm on Tuesday, July 22nd, led by a certified arborist.

The only requirements are comfortable shoes and water if the weather is warm. Optional, but encouraged, is to bring along your smartphone or tablet to learn how to identify and map trees using the GreenprintMaps app. For more information, and to sign up for the tour, go to www.sactree.com.
