Please join us for our summer events in Claremont Canyon. Regular stewardship outings are the third Saturday for restoration work in Garber Park in collaboration with the Garber Park Stewards, and the fourth Saturday for trail maintenance and weed management elsewhere in Claremont Canyon. See below for additional events. 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.

Here's what's happening in July:

Saturday July 21 in Garber Park, 10 AM to Noon.

We will continue weeding for fire safety and maintaining trails. We will focus on the Evergreen Lane hillside above and below Fireplace Plaza. It is important that we keep the trails in good condition so they can be used as emergency evacuation routes in case of fire or other disasters. We provide water, snacks, gloves and tools. Please bring a water bottle for refills. 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 intersection with Ashby/Tunnel Rd. For more information, a map and directions, visit www.garberparkstewards.org or contact Shelagh at garberparkstewards@gmail.com.

Saturday July 28 in the Upper Canyon, 10 AM

We have been busy this past month removing overgrowth from the Willow and Summit House trails and pulling broom from the top of the first hill along the Summit House Trail. This month we plan to return to the Gwin Canyon Trail and make some improvements there. We want to make it as easy as possible for hikers to navigate along the steep hillside. 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 and a water bottle. We will work until 12 or 1 PM.
