CNWS hikes

Save Mount Diablo will be leading three hikes on the CNWS. This is a rare opportunity!
Since World War II the Weapons Station has been locked away. As development filled
Central Contra Costa County, the Station fences protected thousands of acres and
many species of sensitive wildlife. All hikes are on paved roads. We'll see sections
of Mt. Diablo creek and hike into the foothills for views of the Weapons Station
and of Central County. Hikes limited to 40 people. RSVP required. These free
hikes will fill up fast. More info and sign up form here

On Saturday, March 27 we will be removing non-native weeds along the stream bank at our Marsh Creek IV property, east of Clayton. Join the Diablo Restoration Team and help to clean up near the Creek.

When: Saturday, March 27. 9am - noon.
Where: 3240 Aspara Dr., Clayton 94517. Off Marsh Creek Rd.
What: Removing non-native weeds. We'll provide gloves; bring water, hand trowel, a snack and dress in layers.

For information and RSVP contact George, gphillips@savemountdiablo.org or (925) 947-3535.

This past December 75 volunteers planted 500 native plants on our Marsh Creek IV property. The abundance of rain has created ideal growing conditions for the native plants to take root, but has also resulted in non-natives thriving. Weed removal will ensure the native plants will have a greater chance of survival. The Diablo Restoration Team volunteers make it possible. Join us!
