Fountain Thistle Walk and Restoration

Saturday, June 12, 2010, 10:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.: Join Ken Himes and Jake Sigg for a stroll into the usually inaccessible Crystal Springs Watershed to search for the endangered Fountain Thistle. Then after lunch at 1pm, join in on a restoration work party on nearby Caltrans land at highways 92/280 to remove pampas grass and shrub seedlings on a steep hillside that is mostly wet and slippery, so sturdy boots with good traction are a necessity. Gloves and tools will be provided. The work party is from 1 pm to 3.30 pm. The 10 a.m. meeting location for the walk is the Lexington Avenue Gate: South end of Lexington Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94402. Take Bunker Hill Drive exit from Interstate 280, go east on Bunker Hill, take the first right turn onto Lexington Avenue. Take Lexington Avenue to its southern terminus. Park on Lexington Ave. RSVP required: e-mail jakesigg[at]earthlink[dot]net.
