Remove invasives, enjoy nature walk near the mouth of Berkeley's Strawberry Creek

ORGANIZATION: Friends of Five Creeks

Image_202205172109

Sun., May 22, 10 AM - noon, help all-volunteer Friends of Five Creeks remove invasive perennial pepperweed (Lepidium latifolium), a threat to Bay biodiversity. You'll learn about the fascinating history of the Berkeley waterfront, challenges of sea-level rise, and more.

One change: for reasons from recent strong winds to stiffer guidelines for observing shoreline critters, we will not be using magnification to observe shoreline life. When we finish work, interested volunteers can join us on an optional nature walk in either the newly opened "Brickyard" portion of Eastshore State Park or the older, habitat-focused "Meadow" portion -- the group can choose!

Tools, gloves, snacks, and good company provided. This is light work. Bring a re-usable water bottle and dress for changing weather -- the Bay shore can be foggy, cold, windy, hot, and sunny! Wear closed-toed shoes with good traction and clothes that can get dirty. All ages welcome.

If you have questions or want to bring a group, email f5creeks@gmail.com.

Meet at 10 AM at the northwest corner of the Sea Breeze Deli parking lot, 598 University Avenue, just west of the freeway and south of University Avenue (easy by AC Transit 51B or bike or walk via the Bay Trail or bridge over the freeway). If you come late, walk west along the shoreline until you find us.

Friends of Five Creeks is an all-volunteer organization founded in 1996, working hands-on to protect and restore creeks, watersheds, and nature in Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, and south Richmond, on the east shore of San Francisco Bay.

Besides frequent volunteer events, for the general public and for school, religious, business, or other groups, we lead walks, host free Bay Currents talks on nature and environment, publish a monthly e-newsletter on Bay Area environmental news, and advocate for political action on creek and watershed issues.
