We help in maintaining the Firestorm Memorial Garden, the Gateway Way Garden/Emergency Preparedness Exhibit Center, the Frank Ogawa Firescape Garden, and the Broadway Garden in the Oakland hills, and also help in park maintenance at Oakland park sites such as the North Oakland Sports Field, Montclair Park, Gateway Garden, and Morcom Rose Garden. We also assist in beautification projects at multiple Oakland Unified School District school sites. We have also been helping with community tree plantings at schools and planting street trees. We have helped lead ongoing creek restoration efforts in the Temescal Creek tributary that comes through the North Oakland Sports Field.
