Pull invasive French broom, ride the Tilden Park merry-go-round

Saturday, November 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

| Free

Join Friends of Five Creeks and UC Berkeley students from service group Circle K removing invasive, fire-prone French broom in Tilden Regional Park. Most of the big bushes are gone, but re-sprouts and seedlings need control for at least a decade. This is light but important work. We supply tools, gloves, snacks, water, and good company — plus all volunteers get a free ride on Tilden’s century-old merry go round. Meet at Orchard Picnic Area, Lake Anza Rd. and Brook Rd. (From Central Park Drive at Lake Anza Road (this is also a stop for AC Transit 67), just below the merry-go-round, take Lake Anza Rd. a short distance to Brook Rd. on the left. The picnic area is on the right just after you turn onto Brook Rd. Wear long pants, long sleeves, and closed-toed shoes with good traction. Info: f5creeks@gmail.com. Groups of more than 5 please RSVP. Otherwise, just show up!
