Don't know about you all, but I am ready to get back into the park and pull some weeds. On my last visit to the park horehound (Marrubium vulgare) was out of control. Here are some of the weeds we will be battling as the war on the weeds continues!
Horehound (Marrubium vulgare)
Castorbean (Ricinus communis)
Mustard (Brassica and Hirshfeldia species)
Milk thistle (Silybum marianum)
Meet at the park info sign on Pasadena Ave and then head down into the park. The group will pull weeds, pick up litter, and enjoy the park. Come for the whole time, for an hour, or just stop by to say hello.
Nature Park entrance on Pasadena Ave., east of the York St. Bridge
- wear sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
- bring water
- bring gardening gloves and tools (weeders, trowels, whatever you use in your own garden)
- comfortable work clothes, including work shoes (sneakers or boots)
- binoculars for bird watching (optional)
Children must be under adult supervision at all times. There is poison oak in the park, which we will point out before we start.
Please pass this info along to anyone else you think might be interested in the park. If you know of anyone who doesn't use the internet, let me know so we can be sure they are kept in the loop.
See you soon!
