Work party date set: Sunday, July 25

We have confirmed that Sunday, July 25, will be the date for a work party in Hidden Valley. Please watch this site for details.

If you can help out in any way, please email

We need people for a variety of tasks:
  • mowing pathways through the fields of grass
  • identifying and labeling native and landscaping plants
  • mapping gardens throughout the valley
  • disassembling a small greenhouse
  • loading burn piles into barrels for disposal
  • using loppers or chainsaws to girdle the ivy around trees
  • reviewing personal belongings and recommending options for keeping or giving away appropriate items (particularly if you knew Patience Paschall)
  • removing ivy from several small buildings
  • providing drinks and snacks for volunteers (we'll buy)
  • hosting a thank you BBQ for all volunteers (we'll buy the goodies) at the end of the day

Thanks in advance for anything you can offer!
