In honor of National Public Lands Day this year we’ll be addressing problems associated with last year’s torrential downpours in the Park… invasive plants!
We’ll also be working in an area slightly south where we planted sycamore trees several years ago – mulching and some maintenance of the plants.
Please look for our signage – there will be a table for sign-ins.
We’ll be meeting at the Rattlesnake trailhead parking lot, next to Live Steamers (there’s also parking across the street but be careful when crossing).
From there we’ll hike up the trail (a short distance) to remove invasive castor bean plants which really begin to proliferate when the soil has been disturbed.
For your comfort and safety, please wear closed-toed shoes, long pants, sunscreen, and don’t forget the hat. It’s also a good idea to wear a long-sleeve shirt to protect your arms.
We will supply work gloves and water, but if you have your own water container and/or work gloves, we advise that you bring them.
We’ll also have hand tools for this type of work, but if you have your own loppers, bow saws, branch-cutting saws, and or pruning shares, please bring them.
PLEASE NOTE: We’re required by LA Recreation and Parks to provide Volunteer Agreement forms
for each individual working in the Park. You can fill this out online and bring with you.Only one person per form, please. If a volunteer is under the age of 18, their parent or guardian must sign the form. If you have already completed one of our forms, you only need to sign in at the table.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 23rd for National Public Lands Day.
