2018 Events

Folks who cannot make it to a work day can grab a bag of weeds from the entry gate areas any time and take home to their green bins. This will be a BIG help! Please return bags to the gate areas, because we re-use them!

  • Fri, Aug 3 + Sat, Aug 4, 2018: Bristly Oxtongue Removal

    Thank you to the Friday and Saturday crew... Lora, Nel, Jon, Nan, O'Neil, Adele, Priscilla , Cate, Kandace, Andia, Jim, Tamar, Paul, and Eve... independent crew of Lori and Lora... for all the hard work weeding Bristly Oxtongue! We got a lot done!! There's still a bit more to remove, so, folks, feel free to work on your own if you get a chance. Location is the lower hillside by the Zinn gate.

    Bristly Oxtongue is easily distinguished from the native Grindelia (which also has yellow flowers) by its gnarly looking bumpy leaves. Check it out on the Plants pages. If you stick to the lower hillside by the Zinn gate, you're safe!

  • Saturday, July 28, 2018: Bristly Oxtongue Removal
  • Saturday, May 19, 2018: Native Plant Work Day
  • Saturday, April 21, 2018: Earth Day Work Day

Great Blue Heron is Back!

A Great Blue Heron was seen at the field on the morning of July 26. Please be alert, and try to keep your dogs from chasing it. It is hunting for food.
