Enjoy beautiful views of the mountain and the bay from the grassy slopes of Buckeye Canyon while you hike and weed! We need help controlling the spread of Scabiosa atropurpurea, an escapee from nearby gardens, to protect the habitat of the endangered mission blue and callippe silverspot butterflies.
While delightful in the backyard, it is weedy on the mountain; we'll make Scabiosa bouquets for volunteers to take home! (Mixed in with other vibrant weeds like fennel!)

Driving Directions to Buckeye Canyon (Use "69 South Hill Drive, Brisbane, CA 94005" for navigation system)
1) From Bayshore Blvd, turn onto Valley Drive, the entrance to Crocker Industrial Park in Brisbane.
2) Drive down Valley Drive and turn left at the stoplight at the intersection of Valley Drive and South Hill Drive
3) Drive a very short distance on South Hill Drive; as the road begins to curve, immediately after a pedestrian crosswalk, you'll see a steep driveway on your left with potholes. Turn into that steep driveway and drive up.
4) Immediately at the top of the driveway turn left and stop parallel to the concrete drainage ditch, next to the trailhead entrance sign to Buckeye Canyon. This is the drop off location (https://goo.gl/maps/ ZYZLWqeDEpH2)
