Saturday, June 8 in the Upper Canyon  The Conservancy will be celebrating CAL Invasive Weeds Awareness Week by emphasizing removal of invasives along with our usual stewardship efforts.

Saturday, June 15 in Garber Park Join us from 10 AM to Noon as we begin our summer weeding for fire safety. This month we will focus on a beautiful spot, Harwood Creek and Bob's Place, as well as trail maintenance. Ehrarta grass, poison hemlock, English and cape ivy are trying to smother the natives and hide the trails. If we're lucky, we'll see milkweed, an important plant for Monarch butterflies, on the banks of the creek. Meet at the Claremont Avenue entrance, just .4 miles up Claremont towards Grizzly Peak Blvd. from the intersection with Ashby/Tunnel Rd.

Saturday June 22 in the Upper Canyon Join us from 10 AM to Noon at Signpost 29, 1.5 miles up Claremont from Ashby/Tunnel Road. We will continue our work improving the Willow and Summit House Trails. Last month we cleared the steps at the Four Corners Trailhead and removed much of the accumulated vegetation that was blocking the Willow Trail. Now we will focus on the trail itself and deal with the erosion caused by the Spring rains.  We supply tools and gloves but feel to bring your own and a water bottle.
