California Invasive Species Awareness Week
Work with like-minded people to remove invasive plants, improve the creek, and make new friends! We'll be concentrating on arundo, poison hemlock, and ivy. Bring gloves and wear your grubbies.
Contact us to sign up and tell us how many people are coming. We'll reply with all the details and the required waiver form.
Creek Restoration Workdays
We are transforming a weedy area of creek bank in Civic Park into a meadow of wildflowers and native grasses. This season's work started in January -- we're cleaning up weeds and planting new seedlings.
Join us for some rewarding work, camaraderie, and sometimes a brief talk about an aspect of creek ecology. No experience is required -- just a desire to make the creek a better place for both humans and wildlife.

Photos of past restoration days
Shopping carts were a very popular item at the 2019 cleanup. Crew 7 collected three of them plus a baby stroller.
Volunteers removing a large stand of arundo in Civic Park
Last March a large group of volunteers sheet mulched a patch of Bermuda grass next to our restoration site.
In November, other volunteers weeded the Bermuda grass that had broken through.
