October Events in Claremont Canyon

Saturday October 20 in Garber Park  Please join us as we continue our fall clean up. Meet at the Claremont Avenue entrance at 10:00 AM. We will work til Noon. We will start by attacking the Algerian ivy just above Claremont Avenue. A short distance up the trail is beautiful Fern Glade where we have ongoing work removing the ivy to give the ferns a chance to grow once the rains come. Alternatively, you can join us further up toward the Evergreen Lane entrance where we will be cutting and pulling invasive weeds above the fireplace. Also, the trail crew will be clearing the trail and making improvements with your help. 

We provide tools, gloves, water and snacks. Directions: From the intersection of Ashby and Claremont, go .4 miles up Claremont to the Claremont Avenue entrance to Garber Park. For more information, a map and directions, visit or contact Shelagh at

Saturday October 27 in the Upper Canyon Join us at 10:00 at Signpost 29, our usual gathering place 1.5 miles up Claremont from the intersection with Ashby Avenue/Tunnel Road.
