Passive Restoration Workshop in Garber Park

This event has passed.

Fern Glade Stewardship and Woodland Understory Restoration.

The Garber Park Stewards and Claremont Canyon Conservancy are excited to be partnering with Golden Hour Restoration Institute for several exciting workshops throughout the winter season, beginning with a Fern Glade Stewardship and Woodland Understory Restoration Workshop in Garber Park on Sunday, December 8. There is a large relatively flat spot near Fireplace Plaza along Sylvan Path where the ivy has not yet totally engulfed the native ferns which will become our new restoration site.

Lech Naumovich, Executive Director of Golden Hour Restoration Institute, will be leading the workshop, and will discuss Best Practices for Ivy Removal, including the Bradley Method, which we will then remove from the project site, find and flag any new natives we find in the area, track these through the year, and create a small woodland habitat pile using existing, on-site materials.

Location: Evergreen Lane Entrance to Garber Park (near the Claremont Hotel in Claremont Canyon. Enjoy coffee, tea, and snacks. Then be ready to walk along Sylvan Path to our restoration site.

Wear long sleeves, long pants and shoes or boots with good traction as the trails are rugged and the hillsides are steep in Garber.

Directions: The nearest address is 144 Evergreen Lane, Berkeley. From Alvarado Road take Slater Lane, then turn Right onto Evergreen Lane. The entrance to the park is at the end of the street. A map and google directions can be found at

Please RSVP to Shelagh by email or phone as workshop may be limited to reduce impact in this restoration area.
