We will meet in the cul de sac at the top of Anaolani St. 8:30am then walk together to site.
Parking: We are asking if possible to park at the shopping center and carpool to Anolani street to minimize traffic and crowding. Please be respectful to our neighbors and keep our voices down and not to block the turn around in the cul de sac, their trash bins or mailboxes.

TOOLS: All community tools and gloves have been sanitized, we will provide tools and gloves but you are welcome to bring your own tools/gloves. (small hand saws and pick mattocks welcomed)
ACTIVITIES: Short hike to the restoration site. Clearing grasses,
We are trying both conventional & unconventional techniques for our restoration projects. For one is planting year around which can be challenging during our hotter months. We are always looking for help to maintain our sites & bring up water until our on site catchments are filled. This will be ongoing so once on the list we will reach out to you to see if you are free. Usually on the weekend bewtween our normally scheduled workdays for an our or two.
This is a great time to check out what we are all about. See our vision for the valley with your own eyes and talk story.
A chill day with some light clearing, watering & weeding.
