Restoration

Every Wednesday 4 pm to sunset and Sundays 9:30 am-1 pm, Skyline Gardens Project holds 3.5 hour workdays in the Berkeley/Oakland hills on Skyline Trail and its environs. RSVP Skylinegardens@ebcnps.org if interested.

The Skyline Gardens Project is a combination botanical survey and restoration project in the Skyline Trail area of the Oakland–Berkeley Hills. The purpose is to document the native flora and to remove invasive plants to restore the full native diversity of the area. The project is sponsored by the East Bay Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) in collaboration with East Bay MUD. We hold workdays twice weekly, Wednesday late afternoons (after work) and Sunday mornings for three hours each.

See the Skyline Gardens Report page 4 for more information.

We will be having our broom pulls in October as follows: Saturday, October 7th, 9-1 and Sunday, October, 8th, 9:30-1:30. No registration necessary. We are meeting both days at Canyon Meadow and pulling on Eastridge.
