Howdy Friends,

Here's how you can come out and do something for the local  
environment this week.

Seed Hike
Friday morning 10/6 from 10 till noon.
This is a great way to get to know the open spaces, flora and fauna  
in the Sausal Creek watershed.
Meet at the fire gate in Joaquin Miller Park on Sanborn Road across  
from the Visitor Center.

To get to the Friday morning walk, take Hwy. 13 exit at the Joaquin  
Miller Rd. and turn east up the hill.
3/4 miles after passing Hwy13, turn left onto Sanborn
This turn is easiest to find turn by looking for the sign in the  
median of the road that says "Native Plant Nursery". The road is  
labeled Sanborn to the left and Robinson to the right. Note that  
Sanborn Rd. loops and connects to Lincoln further below but it’s not  
a real road entrance.
Drive through the park until you come to a fork in the road. The road  
to the right will be blocked with a yellow gate. Park here just off  
the right side of the road. You can also park at the large parking  
lot to your left.
We'll meet at the gate and hike up the Cinderella Trail.

Grassland Site restoration
Saturday morning 10/7 from 9 till 11:30.
Cut and cover cotoneaster stumps, pull broom, whack acacia re-sprouts
Meet at the Joaquin Miller Native Plant Nursery

Walk past the gate, following Sanborn Rd. down to the nursery. At the  
fork past the gate go left, shortly after you will see the nursery on  
your left. The walk is  about 1/4 mile.

Nursery Program
Saturday afternoon from 1:30 till 4:30.
There are two types of jobs at the nursery. The first is of course  
plant propagation. Right now our green house is bursting with  
seedlings that are just calling out to be transplanted. The second  
job is the general back work that keeps the nursery functioning such  
as moving plants and caring for the growing areas. Nursery work is  
also is a great way to get up close and familiar with the local  
native flora.

Joaquin Miller exit and turn east up the hill.
