We will be removing non-native mustard plants from wild areas adjcent to our currently restored areas. This is hand work with hand tools -- shovels and picks. Some of it may be accomplished by pulling only.

We will provide tools. Volunteers should wear long pants and sturdy shoes. This is a wild space with tall weeds. Snakes and ticks are occasionally observed. Bring gloves, sunscreen and hat, There is water available on site, but no bathrooms. We will be working in a level area close to a fire road.

We meet every other Saturday from 9-noon.

Mission Statement

The Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation works to preserve and enhance Walnut Creek's 2700 acres of open space and to educate area residents so that they can enjoy this wonderful resource.


Our primary activity is doing habitat restoration in the Walnut Creek Open Space. We have ongoing projects at Bayberry Pond, Rock Oak, Indian Valley Pond, Deer Lake, and Fossil Hill. We do occasional work in other locations in the Open Space.

We also have a native plant nursery where we propagate many of the plants we use in our restoration projects.

When opportunities arise, we work to acquire additional open space lands.


We'll work with your schedule.
