We are so happy to be continuing our work with Garber Park Stewards. They have graciously offered to host three more plantings with some important financial support from the Claremont Canyon Conservancy. GPS is a dedicated group of volunteers in Oakland has worked to create a more user-friendly, weed free, flourishing habitat for both the forest denizens (like the woodpeckers and the ensatinas) as well as the local community who has taken to action towards restoring native habitat.
It’s been a blast discovering new rarities (like coralroot and mahonia) and planting appropriate plugs that eventually grow into healthy mature plants. Please join us. We think you’ll love it.
