Thank you to the Single Marines Program

A big thank you to the Single Marines Program (SMP) for a doing great job at our Spring 2016 Clean Up event.  As you would expect, these marines were hard workers.  They were able to accomplish a lot of the heavy lifting of downed trees and limbs that some of us more "seasoned" volunteers can no longer do.  They filled container after container with debris with a vigor and enthusiasm that made us all proud.  Thanks all! Your help is truly appreciated.

Spring 2016 Creek and Trail Clean Up Event

Our semi-annual clean up event will be held Friday April 22nd starting at 8am.  Our clean ups are normally held on a Saturday, but this time we have the privilege of benefiting from the U.S. Marine Corps Single Marine Program (SMP) Day of Service on a Friday.  We will have 25-30 local marines helping us trim overgrown plants and trees, removing trash and debris from the creek and the trail.  If you are able to join us, please come out to lend a hand and thank our marines for their service.  All ages are welcome.  No experience required. Bring gloves and tools if you can, otherwise we will have some supplies available. Vehicles may enter at 751 E. Vista Way and park at the old mobile home lot.



Trail Walk and Bike Ride Along was held June 13, 2015.  Thank you to all who turned out!  It was a perfect day to walk the trail or enjoy a bike ride beneath the beautiful oak canopies along the running creek!
