Strawberry Creek Restoration Project
Hello to all!
And welcome back to the Fall 2009 semester at Cal. First off, let us introduce ourselves as the new Strawberry Creek Restoration Project Interns: Lindsey Sanders and Tyler Grinberg. As the new interns, we are pumped to get some restoration work started on Strawberry Creek, and we are looking to all of you to help us make it happen. To start it off, we have set up three Open Ivy Pulling dates for the fall semester. These dates are:

Friday October 30, 3-5
Friday November 20, 3-5
Friday December 4, 3-5

Don't worry if you can only come for one of the hours, we just like to see people's faces and their interest. And we always like meeting new volunteers so be sure to tell your friends! As an extra incentive, we have a special present to all volunteers who are able to make it to all three of the ivy pull days...their own pair of pruning shears! So come on out and help up remove the invasive Algerian Ivy and Periwinkle from the stream banks of our beloved Strawberry Creek.

If you are interested in getting some training on habitat restoration and being more involved in our efforts, look for an email about becoming a Cal Student Habitat Restoration Leader, coming out soon.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing all of you at our first ivy pull date,

Lindsey Sanders: lsanders@berkeley.edu
