Saturday, February 15, 10Am-Noon
Uncovering Trilliums, ferns, even
several oak seedlings as we weeded
and mulched in Fern Glen on our
first Tuesday in February - a most
gratifying day.

Please join us in Garber Park as we assess drought conditions, weed our restoration sites to give the natives their best chance to survive, perform trail maintenance, and continue removing ivy from the ferns and other natives we find in the western part of Garber. 
Wear long sleeves and pants, and shoes with good tread. Drinks, snacks, tools and gloves are provided, but do bring your own gloves and water bottle if you have them.
As usual we have activities for all ability levels, from easy weed removal on flat easily accessible areas along the Loop Trail to the more heavy lifting activities of trail maintenance and Algerian ivy removal from around the ferns on the steep hillsides along Sylvan Trail.  
Meet at the Evergreen Lane Entrance  Directions: From Ashby take Alvarado Rd to Slater Lane, turn Right onto Evergreen Ln.  The entrance is at the end of the street.  For a map and directions click here
