WHAT Begin clearing the site of fennel and other invasives (tools, coffee, and tunes included)

Time10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Sat, Feb. 10, 2018

Note From Chuck at HMP: Don’t be confused folks.  This is the same ongoing second Saturday of every month workday that has been going on for almost a decade.  We usually meet at Yosemite Marsh in the past but as of recently we’ve been meeting at the new location above to tackle different jobs throughout the park with The Natural Areas Gardeners.

Gloves, tools, instruction, and a snack provided by the host.  Wonderful experience giving back to the park that cleans our air, shades our children, and provides habitat to so many different species of wildlife.  Give it a try folks!  Tell them Chuck sent you and your a member of HMP.
