Please join us for our spring events in Claremont Canyon. Regular stewardship outings are the third Saturday for restoration work in Garber Park in collaboration with the Garber Park Stewards, and the fourth Saturday for trail maintenance and weed management elsewhere in Claremont Canyon. See below for details and additional events. Please check back for meeting places and last minute additions and changes.
For all stewardship work: Please wear long sleeves, long pants, work gloves and sturdy shoes with good tread or boots and bring a bottle of water. We will supply tools but feel free to bring your own.

Saturday March 16 from 10 to Noon in Garber Park. Please join us for our monthly volunteer workday. We have projects for everyone - easy weeding in beautiful Fern Glade and Fireplace Plaza, to the more difficult tasks of trail maintenance. We still have 1/3 of a truck load of mulch at the Evergreen Lane entrance that we need to spread at Fireplace Plaza. Meet at the Claremont Avenue entrance to Garber Park. From the Ashby/Claremont Avenue intersection, go up Claremont .4 miles to the Garber Park sign, trail map and parking turnout. We provide gloves, tools, water and snacks. Wear clothes for changing weather and shoes with good tread as the trails are steep and rugged in places. Bring a water bottle. For more information, a map and directions, visit www.garberparkstewards.org or contact Shelagh at email@example.com.
Saturday March 23 in the Upper Canyon from 10 to 12:00. The trails are holding up well in the rain but we will continue to work on them, either by improving drainage on the Willow Trail or shoring up the lower side of the Gwin Canyon Trail, depending on how many of us join in. Meet us at 10 AM at Signpost 29, 1.5 miles up Claremont from Ashby. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring a water bottle. We supply tools and gloves but feel free to bring your own. We will work until 12 or 1 PM.
Saturday April 20 in Garber Park - Earth Day Celebration, 9:30 AM until noon. Check back for details.
