Fall Restoration Events in Garber Park

Come join us for a fun morning of restoration activities at the Harwood Creek Restoration Site. 

Five years ago the Harwood Creek Restoration Area was covered in Himalayan blackberries and Cape ivy.  Today, the natives are now dominating, but we need   your help in removing the invasives that keep wanting to invade this lovely area.   Meet at Fireplace Plaza at 9AM for coffee and drinks before walking to Harwood Creek for our morning activities. 

Wear long sleeves and pants and shoes with good traction.  We provide tools, gloves, water and snacks.
Click on the VOLUNTEER and MAP and DIRECTIONS buttons above for full details, including  directions to our new Claremont Ave Entrance.  From there a short, but steep hike on Sylvan Path past Fern Glen takes you to Fireplace Plaza.  For questions and more information contact Shelagh
