Report from February workday

Again this month we were fortunate to have sunny skies for the Panhandle Community Workday on Saturday, February 11. Volunteers fanned out across the planted beds and lawns near the playground and basketball court to rake, pick up fallen eucalyptus bark and branches, and pull weeds.

This month the families from San Francisco Day School joined the workday, boosting our overall numbers and bringing out staff from RPD's youth education program. 

RPD staff were happy to have our help, because the ongoing rainy weather has increased the maintenance burden across the entire park system. The pathways through the Panhandle have remained clear of leaves and branches because staff have been out using blowers and removing leaves and branches on a routine basis.
