Help Clear Invasive Plants and Have a Beer with Sempervirens Fund, REI, and Sufferfest Beer Co. at the soon-to-be-opened Kirkwood Entrance at Castle Rock State Park!
Who: Sempervirens Fund’s mission is to protect and permanently preserve redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) forests, wildlife habitat, watersheds, and other important natural and scenic features of California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, and to encourage public appreciation and enjoyment of this environment.
What: In collaboration with REI and Sufferfest Beer Company, join us in removing French broom, Bermuda grass, and yellow star thistle throughout the new entrance. After all your hard work, wrap up the day with a nice cold beer! Participants will pull invasive weeds by hand or using basic hand tools. Work will be moderately strenuous and may take place on sloped and uneven terrain. All tools, gloves, and gear will be provided by Sempervirens Fund, but if you have your own equipment we suggest bringing it along. We recommend wearing long-sleeved shirts, pants, and durable hiking shoes. Please bring your own lunch and plenty of water. Some snacks and beverages will be provided.
Where: We’ll be meeting at the new state-of-the-art, not-yet-opened Robert C. Kirkwood Entrance to Castle Rock State Park (15451 CA-35, Los Gatos, CA 95033).
When: Thursday, May 30, 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
