Sunday, December 3, 10 am, North Basin at the mouth of Schoolhouse Creek. Meet John Kenny at the bend in the shoreline, maybe a 10 meter walk from the paved Bay Trail to the waterfront. Volunteers will be weeding, planting and maybe watering new plants until early afternoon.

Saturday, December 9, 9:30 am, Huckleberry Regional Botanic Preserve. Meet at the parking lot, where we look at weather and soil to decide the best worksite for the month. We had enough volunteers this month to split and work on two locations. With luck, there may be early flowers on the pallid manzanita. Heavy rain will cancel (soil erosion on slopes).
