Stewards of the Oak Woodlands at Golden Gate Park

youth volunteer at Oak Woodlands

On July 13, 2013 the Friends of Oak Woodlands convened for their monthly habitat restoration work-party in Golden Gate Park.  This northeast corner of the park is home to some of the oldest coastal live oak trees in San Francisco.  Working alongside SRRPD Natural Areas staff, the volunteers are creating a primary continuous nature trail with way-finding and interpretive signs.  This new trail is already close to one mile in length.  The Friends are also steadily removing invasive plants that are a threat to native habitat and re-planting with suitable species.  For more information on this ongoing volunteer project, or to sign-up and register to receive regular reports and notices of work parties, check-out the website: http://www.SFNATURALAREAS.ORG.
