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. 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 planting days when we meet on those days instead. Upcoming workdays are Sunday December 18 (planting day), January 21 (planting day), February 25, and March 25.

Note: No bathrooms in Beaconsfield Canyon.
