We hope to fill Oakland's need to improve the city's many hidden pathways/stairways. At first we will remove the plant growth that is harming the pathways. Later we can do other things to improve them by such things as planting flowering plants. It is time to get local people together to improve Oakland.

We have already done 12 group weed cleanups which greatly improved 3 pathway/stairways in Oakland's Lakeshore Neighborhood plus one in the Rockridge Neighborhood.

We did our first improvement to a pathway in Oakland on Sunday, May 20, 2012, and it was a success. 3 of our group showed up to work on our first pathway which was between Balfour & Calmar. Then a close neighbor we did not know saw us and joined us in removing the weeds. Our team of 4 did a great job as you may see in our photos. Since then some of our cleanups have had as many as 7 people.

This group is a spin off of my giant walking group "Walking in San Francisco for Health and History." Link below:http://www.meetup.com/walking-in-SF/
