Canyon Wildflower Hike, April4

It's Spring! Wildflowers are putting on their show. Paul Bouscal will lead his Canyon Wildflower Hike this Saturday April 4th as part of our annual Spring Hike Series. Paul's hikes, consistently one of SBMW's favorite activities, are in the open space above Brisbane & include a visit to an Ohlone Indian shellmound in Costaños Canyon and then continue to Brisbane Acres. Terrain can be steep at times - you will get some exercise!

This hike is limited to 20 participants and so please sign up in advance at the online hike signup page or contact the office by email or phone.

Bring water and a snack or lunch. Dress for varied weather. Hikes leave at 10am and last until approximately 1:30pm.

Meet at the San Bruno Mountain Watch office.

canceled-Stewardship Saturday, Apr4

Buckeye Canyon, 2009

Stewardship Saturday returns on April 11th. See you then!

Now that we're done planting on the Mountain, we will be returning to Owl and Buckeye Canyons this weekend and future weekends for "leisurely" weeding in those earlier planting areas. Weeding gives an important advantage to the recently planted natives during the remainder of the growing season. The workday is 9:30am to 12:30pm. 

Please wear warm, layered clothing, sturdy shoes or hiking boots, and bring 1 liter of water. Gloves and tools will be provided - and a yummy snack.

Meet at the San Bruno Mountain Watch office at 9:15am in time for the 9:30am carpool departure to our work site. Carpooling is essential.

For the most current information, email Iris.
