Join us to restore habitat (weeding and mulching) in the Native Garden at Lake Cunningham Park, San Jose. The California Native Garden project in Lake Cunningham Regional Park controls invasive plants in a 1.5-acre area and beautifies it with California native wildflowers, perennials, shrubs and trees.
For 2021 the project’s priorities include installing irrigation in the meadow, planting small shrubs and perennials in open spaces, and continuing hand watering, weeding and mulching. We’ll continue stinkwort removal and monitor knapweed and pepperweed and request spraying if needed.
We thank our individual volunteers and two volunteer groups who provided participants this year, CNPS and Silicon Valley Volunteers. We also thank park staff for their great support, including fixing water leaks, making mulch piles available where and when needed, and making tools readily available for us.
Workdays continue Saturdays 8:00 - 10:00am. New volunteers are welcome; City-issued guidelines and COVID-19 best practices are followed. For complete details and directions and to RSVP, see our meetup page at www.meetup.com/California-Native-Plant-Society-Santa- Clara-Valley-Chapter.
