Join us! Weekly Sunday Work Party

June 16, 9am-12pm @ Twin Ponds Park

We pulled out a LOT of ivy directly west of the south pond and we have been rewarded with new blankets of Maianthemum dilatatum (false lily of the valley) that was apparently hiding beneath all that ivy. Along the creek, the willow stakes are leafing out. At the same time, we have multiple battle fields of herb Robert and bindweed all over West Twin Ponds. So, if you want to be part of our combative crew, join us! It’s very satisfying to pull out invasive plants. more

Shoreline Park Work Party

June 22, 10am-12pm @ Shoreline Park

Please join us in keeping the small forest of Shoreline Park beautiful. If we love this park, it will keep loving us right back. We're dreaming of a park free of invasive plants and filled with native plants. Work areas are manageable and it's easy to see the difference we've made so far. On this day, we'll be cutting and digging out Himalayan blackberry, rolling up carpets of English ivy, and working to preserve the trailing blackberry, salal, ferns, bleeding heart, and other native plants already thriving. We'll also be hauling mulch to cleared areas and re-weeding the planted zones more
