Here's what's happening in June:
Saturday June 16 in Garber Park Please join us from 10 AM to Noon. Let's continue clearing the invasive plants on the Evergreen Lane hillside. We now have several access points on the steep slope for easier footing and pulling the invasive weeds. For those who prefer flat areas, there's work along the trails or in lovely Fern Glade. We provide water, snacks, gloves and tools. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Meet at the Claremont Avenue entrance, just .4 miles up Claremont towards Grizzly Peak Blvd. from the intersecton with Ashby/Tunnel Rd. For more information, a map and directions, visit www.garberparkstewards.org or contact Shelagh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saturday June 23 in the upper canyon We will resume trail maintenance along the Willow and Summit House Trails and perhaps make some improvements to the Gwin Canyon Trail as well. We love the willows that line the paths but they have a habit of growing rapidly and need occasional pruning. 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 if you have them. We will work until 12 or 1 PM.
July happenings coming soon!
