Saturday, February 16 from 10 to Noon in Garber Park
Please join us. We have volunteer projects for everyone, easy weeding in beautiful Fern Glade to more difficult tasks of trail maintenance. We also will be spreading mulch in the Fireplace Plaza area. Meet at the Claremont Avenue entrance to Garber Park, just .4 miles up Claremont Avenue towards Grizzly Peak Blvd. from the intersection with Ashby/Tunnel Rd. For more information, a map and directions, visit www.garberparkstewards.org or contact Shelagh at email@example.com.
Friday, February 22 Hotel Employees Volunteer Day
Claremont Resort and Spa employees will be out clearing trails and pathways, doing their part in the stewardship of Claremont Canyon. If you see them, be sure to say thank you. This is a rescheduled event that was rained out in January.
Saturday February 23 in the Upper Canyon from 10 to 12:00
Hopefully, we will have a lot more rain this season and our volunteers have been preparing for it. In December we built a channel along a section of the Willow Trail to keep water flowing along the trailside rather than flooding the trail and making it nearly impassible. We will continue to improve our trails in January. Please meet us at 10 AM at Signpost 29, 1.5 miles up Claremont from Ashby. We supply tools and gloves but feel to bring your own and a water bottle. We will work until 12 or 1 PM.
March 9 Berkeley Project Day (coming soon)
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 and gloves but feel free to bring your own. Dress in layers as the weather and temperature changes.
