A "weed" is just a plant out of place. "Weed Warriors" remove invasive plants that ruin wildlife habitat, increase fire danger, take over and crowd out everything else, or are otherwise bad actors in East Bay natural areas.
"Friends of Five Creeks' Weekday Weed Warriors" remove harmful invasive plants in natural areas 10 AM - noon Tuesdays, at a different restoration site each week. Usually, work is followed by coffee and chat. Great way to stay fit and enjoy the outdoors and good company while you give nature a hand! Email email@example.com to get on the list to find out where we meet each week.
Weekend opportunities, too! Check specific meet-ups.
