April 24 (Thurs.), 9-11 AM: Wildflowers and views in Hillside Natural Area -- walk for ages 50+
El Cerrito’s Hillside Natural Area offers 83 acres of grasslands, creeks, and oak forests with spectacular Bay views. Wildflowers should be at their peak in April. On this walk for ages 50+, we’ll avoid the steep routes, but expect ungroomed trails and some ups and downs. Wear sturdy shoes; bring water and sticks if you use them. Meet at the stub end of King Court (1190 King Court on Internet maps), below King and Shevlin. Information: F5creeks@aol.com. Walks are free, but please register at Albany Senior Center, 846 Masonic, 510 524 9122.
April 26 (Sat.), 9 AM - 11:30 AM (note early time): Broom bash at Hillside Natural Area for El Cerrito Earth Day
Join us as we continue to wrench out invasive, fire-prone French broom in El Cerrito's beautiful Hillside Natural Area. Gorgeous views and great fun! We'll partner with El Cerrito Trail Trekkers in the "Motorcycle Hill" area north of Potrero. This work party starts and ends early because afterwards, all volunteers are invited to free lunch at the El Cerrito Community Center.
Meet at the the service road north between 7701 and 7705 Potrero. If you come late, follow the road until you find us. There's a map of trails in the Hillside Natural Area on our web site.
Tools, gloves, snacks, and lotions against poison oak provided. Wear closed-toed shoes with good traction, long pants, and long sleeves. Much of the work is on steep slopes, but we will have some lighter-duty tasks as well.
May 5 (Mon.), 7 PM: Bay Currents talk: Hunters in our Back Yards
