- We’ll return to the meeting spot by 2:00pm.
- This project is rated as moderately strenuous; we will be digging out invasive plants. The work will include bending and walking on uneven surfaces, and potentially walking through water.
WHAT TO BRING

PROVIDED BY SIA
- Tools, work gloves, supplemental drinking water and first aid equipment. Tools involved – picks, and metal pry bars will be our main weapons against these invasive plants. Chemical herbicides will NOT be used.
- This trip will be led by Bernardo Murrieta.
- Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this project.
