Join Friends of Five Creeks removing invasive, fire-prone broom in the area of Tilden Regional Park's 100-year-old merry-go-round and Lake Anza.
Meet at Orchard Picnic Area, Lake Anza Road at Brook Road, just off Central Park Drive, near the merry-go-round. We'll supply snacks, water, tools, and gloves, and treat volunteers to a ride on the carousel!
Bring a picnic lunch or buy it at the snack bar, and enjoy a swim afterwards at Lake Anza, too!
Wear closed-toed shoes with good traction, and long pants and sleeves -- there is poison oak in the area. To get there, from Central Park Drive in Tilden Park turn onto Lake Anza Road and then promptly left onto Brook Road -- the picnic area is near the top of Brook Road on your right.
