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. 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) when we meet on those days instead.

Note:No bathrooms in Beaconsfield Canyon.

Mission Statement

Formed in 1996, the Friends of Sausal Creek is a group of community members protecting the Sausal Creek watershed at a grassroots level. The Friends recognize that citizen participation, from residents to decision-makers, teachers, and students, is critical for building long-term commitment to protecting Sausal Creek as a natural resource for the greater Oakland community. Volunteer opportunities include helping at the native plant nursery and participating in on the ground restoration projects.

Description

The Friends of Sausal Creek Restoration Program aims to provide exposure to the wide variety of plant and animal communities within our watershed. We have adopted six very different sites. Each site represents one of the dominant ecological communities within the watershed: Riparian, Oak Woodland, Redwood Forest, Grassland, Manzanita, and Northern Coastal Scrub. The Friends are committed to organizing volunteer activities that "protect, enhance and restore the natural resources of the Sausal Creek watershed." By working within the chosen six diverse ecological communities we are attempting to improve the overall biological diversity within the undeveloped parts of the watershed. Major projects include the reduction of non-native invasive plant species, the propagation and reintroduction of native plant species, the introduction of measures to reduce erosion, and the improvement of trails.
