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.

Workdays continue on Saturdays from 8:00 to 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.

We follow City of San Jose guidelines for volunteering during the pandemic: face covering, social distancing, no tool sharing. The work is mainly weeding and mulching. Bring your own bucket and a weeding mattock (and knee pad, if you prefer that). Wear a face covering, hat, gloves and sturdy garden shoes. Bring plenty of fluids and hydrate often. We start with a 10-minute orientation, then walk to the site, so please be on time.

First-timers: bring a signed waiver form, available at lakecunninghamnativegarden.files.wordpress.com/2020/05/ 2020-volunteer-status-and-waiver-of-liability.pdf.

First timers: please follow directions on the project’s Meetup page to get to the native garden. Lake Cunningham is a very large park (200 acres) with two entrances. You’ll want to head to the Google map pin for “Lake Cunningham Native Garden.”

Workdays are sometimes rescheduled or canceled. Always RSVP to confirm and check the latest updates Friday night. If you can’t make it, please change your RSVP so we know.
