Park Clean-up: June 13, 2009. 9 am - noon

Hi All,
Here we are again! I expect that this will be our last park clean up until September. I'd like to continue weeding and leveling the mulch in the mound in preparation for some planting next fall. Of course, we'll take a look around for trash as well.

Since I didn't post a report last month, thought I'd include a couple of pictures from the park. The Park Clean Up announcement is below.

Hope to see you there. (And hope it stays cool.)

PARK CLEAN UP: SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 2009, 9 am - noon

Meet at the park info sign on Pasadena Ave and then head down into the park. The group will pull weeds, pick up litter, and enjoy the park. Come for the whole time, for an hour, or just stop by to say hello.

Remember to:

- wear sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
- bring water
- bring gardening gloves and tools (weeders, trowels, whatever you use in your own garden)
- comfortable work clothes, including work shoes (sneakers or boots)
- binoculars for bird watching (optional)

Children must be under adult supervision at all times. There is poison oak in the park, which we will point out before we start.

Please pass this info along to anyone else you think might be interested in the park. If you know of anyone who doesn't use the internet, let me know so we can be sure they are kept in the loop.

See you soon!
