New! Strawberry Creek Restoration Project: Student Group & DeCal

February 1, 2010

New! Strawberry Creek Restoration Project (SCRP) Student Group
We now have an official SCRP Student Group at UC Berkeley. We will be meeting every Monday from 6-7pm, location TBA starting February 8th. Please stop by the meetings as we will be discussing new happenings within the SCRP and this is a great opportunity to give your input into the future of the program. There will be snacks!

New! Strawberry Creek Restoration Project (SCRP) DeCal
This semester we will also be offering a DeCal course called the Strawberry Creek Restoration Project DeCal. We will be meeting every Tuesday from 4-5pm in 187 Dwinnelle. Our first class will be on Tuesday 2/9. Come to the first class to get the CCN and sign up for the course. In this DeCal we will be exploring the purpose behind restoration work and learning about the restoration efforts in place on the UCB campus. We will also be do hands on ivy removals on campus, and students will be required to participate in 2 ivy removals outside of class to pass the course (this would be great for some of you who come to our events already!). This course will be taught by Lindsey Sanders and Tyler Grinberg. We hope to see you there!
