Golden Hour Restoration Institute and Garber Park Stewards will be leading a Workshop on Passive Restoration Techniques near a restored drainage of Harwood (Claremont) Creek where the City of Oakland has invested Measure DD funding. The same techniques that Golden Hour used to inform the first City-funded restoration will be taught to interested public. All materials for restoration will originate from onsite. Learn about in situ propagation techniques for a number of native plants including blackberry, osoberry, willow, and thimbleberry, among others.
Be ready to get dirty and work physically as we conduct weeding, transplanting, and soil erosion control.
Meet at the Evergreen Lane Entrance at 10AM to sign in, enjoy some coffee and snacks, and then be ready for a short walk along the Lower Loop Trail to Harwood Creek. Wear long sleeves and pants, and sturdy shoes.
Please RSVP as workshop may be limited to reduce impact in this restoration area.
Directions: The closest address is 144 Evergreen Lane, Berkeley.
