Millard Canyon Conservation Project--Volunteer Day

From Mike Hickman -

Well, it's that time again! Bird nesting season is officially over for this year and we can once again get back to doing restoration work and invasive weed removal in Lower Millard Canyon.
Our next Volunteer Day will be this coming Saturday, October 24, 9am to 1:30pm.

As usual, we will gather in my driveway at 9am sharp (3617 Canyon Crest Rd., Altadena 91001)
You will need to wear long pants and hiking shoes/boots. Layering with a long sleeve shirt is also recommended.

We supply gloves, tools, snacks and water.

A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT: We have installed railroad tie stairs leading into the canyon work area, eliminating the difficult and steep hike into and out of the canyon some of you may remember from last season. Getting there and back is much easier and only takes a few minutes now.

At this point, I would like thank and welcome those of you who signed up recently for the volunteer notifications and say we look forward to getting to know you better as we all work toward improving the wildland habitat in the canyon.
So thanks in advance, and I hope a whole bunch of you show up Saturday.

Any questions?
