August 30 - Sinbad Creek Work Party, Sunol

Join us on Saturday, August 30th from 8 am to 11 am to remove invasive plants along beautiful lower Sinbad Creek in Sunol. We'll focus on removal of the highly invasive tamarisk (saltcedar), which has gotten a small foothold in the creek. While there are only a few individual tamarisks, we'll have to work carefully, as tamarisk can reproduce vegetatively from small pieces that break off and root in stream channels. For those interested this will also be an opportunity to clean trash from the creek before the winter rains come. We'll meet and be working at the bridge over Sinbad Creek on Bond St., Sunol.

We'll be working in a fairly level section of creek, but the banks can be steep to climb, and rocky. Wear pants and appropriate footwear, including closed-toe shoes. There is a bit of poison oak in Sinbad Creek which we should be able to avoid. The creek is currently dry, so there's no risk of wet feet. However, the ground can be uneven. It can be warm and sunny in Sunol, so bring sunscreen and water in a re-usable bottle.
