Starting our 2012 at the Panhandle's West End

2012's first community workday in the Panhandle is coming up this Saturday, and the forecast is for clear weather.

Saturday, January 14
9 am - 11:30 am 
Meet in the park at the bulletin board near Ashbury
Tools & gloves provided, wear sturdy shoes and dress in layers

Park staff tell me that our projects will be centered in the area between Shrader and Stanyan, where the Sue Bierman Glade is located. It's rare that our workday takes place all the way up at the west end of the park, so Saturday's program is a rare opportunity to care for an area that, despite some recent tree pruning and path upkeep, isn't reaching its potential as a transition area between the Panhandle and the rest of Golden Gate Park (or as a tribute to a neighborhood hero).

Let's take time Saturday during our snack break to learn more about Sue Bierman, for whom the grove of redwoods, cypress, and pines was dedicated more than ten years ago. All are welcome to join us, and our break typically starts around 10:30 a.m.
