A Summertime Clean & Green Day Recap

With record high temperatures on June 8, a hearty band of volunteers joined our SFRPD gardeners in timely fashion. Underlying cardboard and mulch topping were applied to ensure hydration and preclude weed infiltration of newly planted beds at the Jackson and Pierce entry.

Dog Run Foxtail Weeding Recap

Dog Run Foxtail Weeding Party Recap

On May 4, in conjunction with a city-wide dog area clean-up campaign, a dozen hearty and enthusiastic volunteers removed a considerable amount of foxtails from the Southside dog run terrace.  This invasive weed poses a very serious threat to pets.  The plant's barbed seed heads can invade the nose or burrow between the toes and inside the ears, eyes, and mouth and even dig directly into the skin.

Alta Plaza Park Dog Area Clean-Up

Join the Friends of Alta Plaza Park in partnership with SF Dog as we weed out foxtails that are dangerous to your pets.

Socialize with your neighbors and enjoy complimentary refreshments. Wear sturdy shoes, hat, sun screen, and bring a refillable water bottle.  We'll provide gloves and tools.
