Habitat Restoration Workday, Saturday, Oct. 10, 10AM-Noon

Creek to Bay Day Before the Rain.  Over 20 volunteers made
this year's CTBD an overwhelming success.  In spite of the
rain this hardy group dug and chopped the fire prone
invasives for two hours before the "buckets of rain" forced them
to quit.  THANKS TO ALL!!

 Saturday, October 19, 10AM-Noon

 Please join us for our monthly Saturday workday as we continue to pull the invasive weeds (Himalayan blackberry, Cape ivy, erhardta grass) from our Restoration sites in preparation for winter planting.

We will also continue restoring the trail from Fireplace Plaza to Claremont Ave. We’re making great progress, but there’s still much more work to be done before the trail is usable.

Meet at the Evergreen Lane Entrance to Garber Park.  Directions:  From Ashby take Alvarado Rd to Slater Lane, turn Right onto Evergreen Ln.  The entrance is at the end of the street.  

For all workdays in 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.

**Our twice-a-month Habitat Restoration Workdays - the 1st Tuesday and the 3rd Saturday of the month - will resume in November.
