The war on blackberry continues! Several volunteers showed up for the second week in a row to help clear invasive himalayan blackberry near Roy’s Pools. This was, however, my very first saturday restoration as the new WSP Americorps member with SPAWN! It was so nice to see the great turnout and meet die-hard volunteers such as Bill and Lee. We opened up a nice big area and found a few more plantings from years past buried beneath the blackberry. Additionally, we planted a bunch more coyote brush as well as some coast live oak saplings. We’ll be back again next saturday Jan. 31st and I can’t wait to get back to work and continue refurbishing this beautiful riparian area. Big thanks to the Environmental Traveling Companions for helping us out! See you at the creek!
