Help Restore Beaconsfield Canyon--last Saturday of the month

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Friends of Sausal Creek

Clearing the hillside

Join local volunteers in restoring beautiful Beaconsfield Canyon, between Chelton and Ascot drives, in Oakland's Montclair district. We pull invasive plants, plant natives, water them, build trails, and enjoy the urban wilderness. We supply tools, gloves, snacks and water. Wear long sleeves, long pants, and closed toe shoes with decent treads for slippery ground. Meet at 2639 Beaconsfield Place, just off Chelton Drive. Walk in on the dirt road. For more info, email richard@rkcommunications.com.

We meet the last Saturday of each month, 9-12, with exceptions for Earth Day (April) and Creek-to-Bay Day (September) and special winter planting days when we meet on those days instead. Upcoming workdays are Saturdays January 27, February 24, March 30, April 27, May 25, June 29. (No workday in December).

Note: No bathrooms in Beaconsfield Canyon.
