PARK CLEANUP, SATURDAY, November 20, 9 am - noon

No park cleanup if it is raining. Next clean up is December 11th.
If I don't see you tomorrow - wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

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!

Boy Scouts Work in Nature Park

On the last Saturday of October a group of boy scouts helped out in the Nature Park. Working hard, the boys rebuilt the original path from the entry, blocking the cut through that walkers and joggers created. They also weeded and collected litter.

Scouts dig out weeds in nature park.

Rebuilt park entrance path. Curved path reduces erosion and slope to meet ADA requirements.
