On Thursday, September 12 volunteers are needed to cut out a patch of Arundo at Hap Magee Ranch Park. The lead agency on this opportunity is the Friends of San Ramon Creek. Arundo is a bamboo-like invasive weed that needs to be cut back for the health of the creek. Volunteers will cut and haul the canes to a nearby dumpster. Volunteers need to be 14 or older, physically capable, and active.
To register contact Dick Heron who is with Friends of San Ramon Creek. Email your name, age, phone, preferred shift time, and include your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shift #1: 12 - 3 pm
Shift #2: 3:30 - 6:30 pm
Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt, closed-toe sturdy shoes or hiking boots, gloves, and a hat. Bring safety glasses if you have them. We will have drinking water, but you may want to bring along your own snacks.
Volunteers will need to sign a waiver with the Friends of San Ramon Creek; it will need a parent signature if the volunteer is under 18. Once you connect with Dick Heron he will email the form to you ahead of time.
