The GPS are taking a break for the Holidays, but January, 2015 will be a busy month in Garber. Please join us for our Habitat Restoration Workdays, Tuesday, January 6 and Saturday, January 17. We will return to pulling out the invasive weeds that are popping up in our restoration sites. It's also the time to do some trail maintenance - shoring up the trails and improving drainage. On Saturday, January 24, Lech will be leading Winter Restoration Workshop on Passive Restoration along the riparian corridor of Harwood Creek. Click here to download a flyer of the Workshop Series.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and we hope to see you in
Garber in January.
