Please join us for our spring events in Claremont Canyon. Stewardship outings are twice monthly (first Tuesday and third Saturday) restoration work in Garber Park in collaboration with the Garber Park Stewards, and once a month (usually the fourth Saturday) for trail maintenance and weed management elsewhere in Claremont Canyon. 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.
Check back for more of what's happening in Claremont Canyon next month and beyond (for a description of volunteer opportunities, click here).
Saturday, March 25, 10-noon in the Upper Canyon
We are focused on completing the Gwin Canyon Trail. Meet us at Signpost 29 at 10 AM and we will work til Noon. Signpost 29 is on your right as you drive 1.5 miles up Claremont from Ashby Avenue. We have just a few feet of trail building to go and trail widening and shoring up also is needed in parts. For those of you who have ventured down the new trail, you've noticed the creek crossings and pathway we have cut into the hillside. We are proud of what we have done so far and invite you to help us finish the job.
Saturday, April 8th, 10 a.m. Clark Kerr Trail with "Take to the Hills"
Lace up your boots and join us for a free tour of the recent trail improvements to the Clark Kerr Trail during the peak of Spring. Take To The Hills invites you on a guided tour of this local gem which links Dwight Way, Panoramic Way and the Stonewall Trail in Claremont Canyon Preserve. Over the last two years, Take To The Hills has replaced and installed stairs, widened the trail and removed obstacles. The trail was never this good and usage has increased dramatically. Meet at the top of Dwight near the Clark Kerr Campus track. Sturdy shoes are advised. The walk is about 1.5 miles, out and back.
