Upcoming Green Events in El Cerrito

The City of El Cerrito periodically sends out an email newsletter with upcoming green events in town. It can be subscribed to here.

Here's a March rundown courtesy of the El Cerrito Environmental Services Division:

Hillside Natural Area Broom Buster Event | Saturday, March 13 | 10 AM to 4 PM
Join local volunteers for the first in a series of events aimed at clearing scotch broom from the Hillside Natural Area. Scotch broom is an aggressive, invasive species that crowds out native plants, reducing diverse wildlife habitat. Winter is the ideal time to remove these plants due to the softened soil. Register to volunteer today, online at www.el-cerrito.org/esd/greenteams.html, by email to gschultz@ci.el-cerrito.ca.us , or by phone to (510) 215-4354.

Spring Clean-up at Baxter Creek | Monday, March 22 | 10 AM to 12:30 PM
Alternative spring break in coordination with Friends of Five Creeks. Contact f5creeks@aol.com or (510) 848-9358 for more information.

Ohlone Greenway and Cerrito Creek Clean-up | Sunday, March 28 | 9 AM to 12 PM
Join El Cerrito Green Teams for monthly community events! In March, clean up sections of the Ohlone Greenway and Cerrito Creek. Help us remove litter and trash, beautify our natural areas, and keep pollution from flowing to Bay. Register to volunteer today, online at www.el-cerrito.org/esd/greenteams.html, by email to gschultz@ci.el-cerrito.ca.us , or by phone to (510) 215-4354.

Register for Earth Day | Saturday, April 24 | 9 AM to 12 PM
Earth Day is around the corner - make sure to register today for the best turn out yet! Register to volunteer today, online at www.el-cerrito.org/esd/greenteams.html, by email to gschultz@ci.el-cerrito.ca.us , or by phone to (510) 215-4354.
