|Thanks to this crew, led by Bob Strayer, we|
now have a bench with a view!
|And Thanks to Bob's leadership we also have|
a new bridge on the Lower Loop Trail.
Walking Garber’s trails just became easier – and safer – thanks to the wonderful turn-out and hard work of our volunteers for our first ever Earth Week of activities. Our focus was on improving the trails – from removing the spring weed growth to shoring up the trails. For 5 consecutive days, 41 volunteers contributed 123 hours clearing the trails of overgrown weeds, raking the trails of debris, re-building a bridge, installing ersosion control measures along the creek, shoring up the trails from winter damage, and placing a new bench at a special spot near the Rispin Junction with a view across the Bay.
Thanks, everyone, for a fun and successful week of trail restoration. We couldn’t do it without you! Spring is beautiful in Garber. Do come and enjoy this gem of a Wildland Park at the Gateway to Claremont Canyon, and if you see a volunteer say “Thanks.” Better yet, join us on our next volunteer workday: Saturday, May 19, 9AM-Noon. We will focus on eradicating the invasive weeds from our restoration sites. With your help we can push back the invasive weeds and keep Garber fire safe and a community gem of a park!
