Garber Park is a 13-acre City of Oakland woodland park located behind the Claremont Hotel. The mile long Loop Trail takes us through a forest of oaks, Bay Laurel, Big Leaf Maples and California Buckeyes to the 1920's era stone Fireplace Plaza. The Garber Park Stewards vision is to safeguard the native wildland resources of Garber Park while reducing the risk of wildfire and improving the trail system.

|Where is the Himalayan blackberry? Gone!|
In its place snowberry, ferns, and cow parsnip.
Meanwhile, Mary was at The Restoration Site at the Evergreen Lane entrance conducting the first monthly photographic documentation of our recent planting on the hillside. The plants are all thriving and enjoying these spring rains. When we finally get a bit of sunshine we hope you will find time to come and walk the Loop Trail, enjoying Garber Park in its Spring beauty.
April Workdays: Tuesday, April 2, 10AM-Noon, and Saturday, April 16 (Earth Day), 9AM-Noon. We will be taking advantage of the soft ground to pull cape ivy, poison hemlock, and French broom, as well as trail maintenance and cleaning up the area around Fireplace Plaza.
