The Lake Cunningham Native Garden is a volunteer-maintained area at the south shore of Lake Cunningham in San Jose. Tasks include weeding, mulching, planting, and watering. Workdays are Saturdays 9am to 11am. Volunteers will be trained in covid best practices: face covering, social distancing, no sharing of tools. Sign and bring the waiver form at the Forms link below.
