PARK CLEANUP - Saturday, Feb. 11, 2012

The Planting Party on January 28th went extremely well - and now with rain in the forecast (please, please, please rain....) the plants should be happy. Have a look at my other blog to see some pictures taken during the event.

On Saturday, Feb. 11,  we will water any plants that look thirsty, especially if the rain is insufficient. We will yell at the gophers to go elsewhere, and sing to the new plants, but mostly, as always, we will hunt down every last weed we can find. Yes, there is also trash to remove and junk to pull out of the gully. If you were unable to come to the Planting Party, stop by to see all that we were able to do. Hope to see some of you on Saturday.

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.
