When: Saturday, August 18

What:

9:30am – 2pm: Greens at Work Restoration Along Bay Trail. Join Tom and Jane Kelly to help continue their ongoing native plant restoration project along the Bay Trail between Central Avenue and Point Isabel Regional Shoreline. It’s easy work and the more volunteers that come out to help for an hour or two will make the Bay Trail sparkle. Where: Pt. Isabel, on the Bay Trail, halfway between the dog park and Central Avenue. Just off I-580 (take Central to the bottom of the I-580 overpass). At the stop sign (Rydin Road) turn right and park along Rydin Road. (If you pass Costco on your right, you’ve gone too far!) They set up about half way between the Bay Trail entrance and the dog park.
