Event Description: 

Join us and help enhance Swallowtail butterfly habitat on Strawberry Hill!  If you love your parks, and are looking for a meaningful and substantive way to make a positive difference, come on out and volunteer with the San Francisco Parks Alliance and the Recreation and Park Department!   On the second Saturday of every month we’ll enhance butterfly habitat on Strawberry Hill.  We’ll remove invasive weeds, and put in the native plant species that Swallowtails and other butterflies need to thrive! In addition to enhancing habitat, volunteers will learn about the natural and cultural history of Strawberry Hill. It promises to be an inspiring and fun day in a gorgeous setting!  

We meet at the  Stow Lake Boat House and get started at 10:00 AM sharp.  Please RSVP to Julia Brashares by the Thursday before each Saturday volunteer workday at julia@sfparksalliance.org or by calling 415-621-3260 ext. 105.  (We need to know how many volunteers will participate so we’ll bring enough supplies and tools for everyone.) All instruction and needed tools will be provided.   Please wear closed toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and dress in layers as the weather can change quickly.  Bring water and a sack lunch.  If you’re sensitive to sun, don’t forget your sun block lotion and hat!  The volunteer work day runs from 10 AM - 2PM.
