PARK CLEAN UP: SATURDAY, April 24, 2010, 9 am - noon

Hope some of you were able to go on the Theodore Payne Garden Tour last weekend. It was truly special this year. I posted a few pictures on my Wild Suburbia blog.

I will be going to the Nature Park on the 24th to see how things are growing. Haven't been in a while and am hoping all of the spring rain has helped the new plants but not the weeds (wishful thinking). Hope to see some of you there.

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.

Nature Park entrance on Pasadena Ave., east of the York St. Bridge

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!
