REI Joins SF Rec and Park’s Earth Month Madness
Partnership to Celebrate Earth on Top of Bernal Hill
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Recreation and Park Department in partnership with REI will be celebrating earth with volunteers on Earth Day, April 20, 2013. This year REI joins SF Rec and Park’s Earth Month Madness and together lead volunteers to help restore wild habitat and urban trails in San Francisco’s natural areas in Bernal Hill.
“SF Rec and Park’s volunteers share our mission of protecting our earth and preserving our wild habitat,” said Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec and Park General Manager. “REI has been a great community partner, and together we better the health of our parks and natural areas.”
On April 20th starting from 9:00AM to noon, a group of volunteers will come together for a vigorous morning workout removing invasive plants from the hillside, repairing trail tread and working for erosion safety control. There will also be watershed activities provided by Kids in Parks for environmental education. Light snacks will be provided, and raffle prizes for volunteers.
