Nonnative Plant Removal by San Leandro Creek

Friends of San Leandro Creek are hosting a nonnative plant removal on two dates in May. Please sign up for one or both dates here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nonnative-plant-removal-by-san-leandro-creek-tickets-45704082140 The funding for this event is from a City of San Leandro grant- Get Ready, San Leandro.

The two work days are May 12 & 19 from 10:00 AM-3:00PM. We will meet at Chabot Park, below the playground. Volunteers do not need to work both work days; one is fine.

Scout troops, clubs and groups are welcome, as well as individuals. We will be removing invasive plants on the 1st work date, and covering the area with burlap sacks and mulch on the 19th. We recommend that volunteers wear long pants and sleeves, sturdy shoes, and mosquito repellant. Bring gloves and tools (clippers, shovels) if you have them. FSLC will provide tools, snacks and drinks. For more information, call Susan Levenson with Friends of San Leandro Creek at 510-577-6069. All participants are required to fill out a waiver form, Clean-Up-Waiver and bring to the event. Additional copies will be available on the event days. Children under 14 years of age are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. The Friends will certify volunteer hours for community service for schools.
