Garber Park is home to significant stands of big-leaf maple, California buckeyes and regenerating coast live oak woodland and forest. The Garber Park Stewards vision is to safeguard the native wildland resources of Garber Park while reducing the risk of wildfire and improving the trail system.

THANK YOU Claremont Hotel Volunteers!

Mudslide blocking the lower loop trail
from the recent storm this week.
HATS  OFF to the volunteers from the Claremont Resort and Spa who joined the Garber Park Stewards in clearing the trail, shoring it up, and mulching.  And, thanks to Bob Strayer in leading this group of "mud wrestlers."  Thanks to all of you the Loop Trail is once again accessible for walking.

We wish to thank ALL the Claremont Resort Volunteers for a great Stewardship Day.  Besides opening up the Loop Trail for visitors once again our local neighborhood paths have been cleared of debris and weeds and swept - a great day of beautifying the neighborhood.

Please come and walk the paths and especially Garber where the Trilliums are blooming and the maples and buckeyes are ready to show the spring foliage any day.

But, do be careful in Garber - the trails are steep, and still muddy in spots.
