Help Save A Creek This Week
February 15, 2002
Adults are urgently needed to help supervise youth volunteers at the Friends of Baxter Creek work party this Saturday, Feb. 16th, from 9 a.m. to noon at Booker T. Anderson, Jr., Park in Richmond.

In October, FOBC volunteers worked at the park with three adults and 24 fifth graders from the East Bay Conservation Corps’ Project YES, an environmental volunteer program for children, to remove trash, weed, and plant willows. We’ll be out in the park again this Saturday with more youth volunteers, weeding and cleaning up the banks of this, the longest accessible stretch of the Baxter Creek in the watershed. FOBC monthly work parties are held on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. Open to both new- and old-comers, they offer an opportunity for you to work outside, socialize, and snack with other FOBC’ers. For more information on our work parties and other FOBC activities, see http://www.creativedifferences.com/baxtercreek . Please join us on Saturday!
