Trail Trekkers will be working with Friends of Five Creeks on this valuable effort to restore native habitat in the Hillside. Please join us.

Saturday, July 20: Help reduce fire danger in the El Cerrito Hillside Natural Area, 10am – 12:30pm

Join Friends of Five Creeks in El Cerrito’s beautiful Hillside Natural Area, to continue a years-long effort of removing invasive, fire-prone French broom, in order to reduce fire danger and promote biodiversity.

From the entrance at the south end of Regency Court (across from 1520 Regency), the group will walk to the area’s welcoming central meadows between oak groves, talking about history and nature. Work is not heavy unless you want it to be, but part of the fire-road walk is reasonably steep. Poison oak is always a possibility, kids should be middle-school aged or older, and all should wear long pants, long sleeves, socks, and closed-toed shoes with good traction. Bring sun protection and a re-usable water bottle. We supply gloves, snacks, tools, and good company.

For information, please email Groups of more than 5 please RSVP. Otherwise, just show up!
