Meet at the Evergreen Lane Entrance at 9AM to sign-in, enjoy some
coffee and snacks, and then be ready to walk along the Loop Trail to
Harwood Creek. Help remove the invasives (Himalayan blackberry,
Cape ivy and others) that are threatening to encroach on the Measure
DD funded Creek Stabilization project along Harwood Creek, completed
just last January.
Lech Naumovich, Executive Director, Golden Hour Restoration Institute,
will be on hand to discuss the importance of Garber’s wetlands and the
riparian corridor along Harwood Creek. Learn to identify the unique
plant and animal resources that reside here as well as the invasive
plants that threaten the survival of this unique ecosystem.
Everyone welcome. Wear long sleeves and pants, and sturdy shoes
Directions: The nearest address is 144 Evergreen Ln., Berkeley. From

Garber Park is a 13-acre City of Oakland wildland park located behind
the Claremont Hotel. The Loop Trail takes us through a forest of oaks,
Bay Laurel, Big Leaf Maples and California Buckeyes to the 1920’s era
stone Fireplace Plaza. The Garber Park Stewards vision is to safeguard
the native wildland resources of Garber Park while reducing the risk
of wildfire and improving the trail system.
