Brought to you by the City of Fremont, Environmental Services No experience is necessary. This volunteer opportunity will fulfill community service hours. Join us for a morning of habitat restoration! Your work will help increase native plant diversity and improve food and shelter for wildlife. We will remove invasive plants and maintain native plants. If it rains: Update as of Feb 9th, 6:15am: Predictions are currently for "cloudy" weather at 9-11am, then some showers (but not heavy rain), so the work day will proceed. If you decide you need to leave early to avoid/get out of the rain, that's fine. Please do make sure to clean up the tools you've been using, the invasive plant debris you've removed, and let me know you're leaving when you do. If you need your service hours forms signed, I'll note the hours you worked before you depart. Thanks! ~Sabrina   Check this description for an update on whether or not the event is being held. An email will be sent to the email address of each registered attendee, too. Lightning or a downpour near the time of the event will cancel the event. (A new event will likely be scheduled, and people registered or on the waitlist for this event will be invited for the make-up event first, but will need to register themselves for that date, even if they were registered for a canceled date.) If there is only light rain, we may continue with the event. We may stay more on the asphalt trails if the ground is very slippery or soggy and prone to compaction. Please bring/wear rain gear, including waterproof footwear and rain/ski coats/pants, if you have them. Even if it's not raining, sturdy shoes, long sleeves, and long pants will be needed to protect you from prickles and spines, as well as oils that may cause some skin irritation. *** Waitlisted Folks: If our habitat stewards are present, we'll be accepting up to 40 attendees. If you received an email that a ticket was released to you, please let me know if you still want to attend or not. If registered attendees do not show up, the open spaces will be provided to the waitlisted folks in the order in which they signed up. If you signed up on the wait list more than once with the same name and email address, I'll assume you only need 1 space, unless you inform me otherwise. *** Everyone: remember to bring a signed waiver form, also signed by a parent or legal guardian, if you are a minor! When:  Choose your date. We will typically meet on the first or second Saturday of each month. Where:  Exact site locations will be announced prior to the event.
