Blair Park Community Work Day Saturday Feb. 28

A community work day will be held Saturday, February, 28 from 10 a.m. to noon in Blair Park to clean off ivy and weed around the oak trees at the base of the hillside.   Everyone (except children under 12) is invited, wearing work gloves and bringing clippers and rakes if they have them.   Refreshments and snacks will be on hand. Street parking is available on Moraga Avenue at the upper end of the park.

The Piedmont Public Works Department will pick up the piles of clippings after the event.  Neighbors have been working with City staff to set up regular maintenance in the park and to do the work approved by the City Council in Phase 1 of the Blair Park landscape improvement plan.  The City plans to remove more of the diseased pine trees along Moraga Avenue, with the goal of encouraging the oaks that are growing beneath them.

The event is sponsored by Friends of Moraga Canyon. Visit www.moragacanyon.org for more information.
