RSVP HERE --> https://parksproject.ticketleap.com/cesar-chavez-park-habitat-restoration/details

When: Saturday, May 18, 2019. 9:00am-1:00pm

Where: 11 Spinnaker Way, Berkeley, CA 94710

You bring: Closed-toe shoes, long pants, long sleeve shirt (recommended), refillable water bottle, work gloves if you have them.

We provide: Tools needed for the event, water, snacks, Parks Project swag for volunteers!

Directions: 11 Spinnaker Way, Berkeley, CA 94710

There should be ample parking along Spinnaker Way. Upon arrival, volunteers can follow the trail north to the designated meeting area.  See photo for map to meet-up spot:

The crew will be split into three groups-- removing fox-tails and fire fuel (dry brush and limbs) as well as transferring mulch to reduce the mosquito habitat.  

Group 1: Foxtail Removal Site.  Volunteers in this group can manually remove foxtails along trails and anywhere they can be eradicated before the seeds drop. The removal of seed heads will reduce the number of foxtail grass that will grow in the following grow season and cycle. Removing of these seeds will also reduce the potential for injury to dogs as sometimes dogs will get foxtails stuck in their nose, nostrils, eyes or paws.

Group 2: Fire Fuel Removal Site.  Volunteers in this group can prune, cut and haul away dead and dry brush and limbs. Removal of this dead and dry brush will reduce fire fuel in preparation for summer months and wildfire season.

Group 3: Mulch Site.  Volunteers at this site can move mulch with wheel barrows from an existing mulch pile to a large low depression that is currently muddy and has standing water present. Volunteers will cover the mud and water with mulch. Filling this depression will eliminate the standing water which will reduce mosquito breeding habitat.
