Hand Pump Workday
Hare: Hand Pump
When: December 09 2017, 10:00 AM
Start: Harvard & Bacon Streets
This Saturday 12-9-2017 is the last Volunteer Workday of the year. For some of you this means two hours of working with fellow hashers and even non-hashers to plant native species around the pond at Yosemite Marsh in John McLaren Park. For a few of you (Saint TBB and DHW), this is you final chance to do officially sanctioned war on the hated Himalayan Blackberry. I shouldn't say this out loud, but it is only an infraction offence if you two want to continue this campaign on your own time. You could even apply for a certification from Rec and Park which will allow you to do battle all over the city with this evil, blood thirsty weed. The details of the Workday are as follows: When: Saturday 12-9-2017 10:00AM until Noon Where: Meet at the corner of Harvard and Bacon Streets There is usually plenty of street parking. The alternate meeting site is the parking lot for the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater on Shelley Dr. What: Planting, weeding and general cleanup of the area around the pond at Yosemite Marsh. This great Natural Area will be the site of the first Creek Daylighting project in SF. Wear: Long Pants and Sleeves (especially if you want to work on Blackberry), sturdy shoes (maybe bring an extra pair, some of the ground is a bit soggy). Dress in layers (weather starts out cool, but should be nice as the day goes along.) Note: As always SF Rec and Park will provide tools and gloves, snacks and water. Special Note: As always SFH3 and Hand Pump will provide BEER. RSVP by e-mail or phone to Hand Pump (firstname.lastname@example.org 415-713-0423) We would like your RSVP in order to insure that we have enough tools, gloves and BEER, but if you are inspired Saturday morning SHOW UP.
