Strentzel Meadow Restoration Days
Join Friends of Alhambra Creek at their ongoing restoration days on the first and third Saturdays of every month, 9 am – 12 noon, at Strentzel Meadow. A beautiful meadow adjacent to Mt. Wanda, Strentzel Meadow is owned by the National Park Service and is being restored as part of a project intended to reduce flooding in the surrounding neighborhood, improve water quality and provide wildlife habitat.
Weed Warriors do work 1st & 3rd Saturdays at Strenzel Meadow. On some occasions they may cancel, so it would be best to check with them first if you plan to join them. Contact Elaine Jackson at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
