HELP PROTECT LOCAL WILDLIFE! VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE
Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve
Spring Creek Clean-Up
Saturday April 9, 2022 – 8:30-Noon
Haskell Creek, where it runs through Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, hosts many riparian trees and shrubs, such as cottonwoods and willows. Songbirds forage and nest in the trees, while egrets and herons fish in this heart of the Wildlife Area. The needed winter rains brought a trash infestation. Please help clean up the mess, restoring our lovely creek!
Equipment and Clothing: You will get muddy and maybe wet. Please wear rugged clothing and shoes or rubber boots. If you have them, bring work gloves and long-handled tools to reach trash. We have trash bags and a limited supply of other equipment for you to use.
Directions: The Wildlife Reserve is east of Woodley Ave. about a half mile north of Burbank Blvd. Turn east at the sign for the Japanese Garden (6100 Woodley Ave., Van Nuys, CA. 91406), stay to the right, and follow Wildlife Way about a half mile, going halfway around a traffic circle, to the parking area at the end of the road. Meet at the amphitheater behind the rock-faced buildings between 8:30 and 9:15AM.
More: The event is appropriate for adults, college and high school students, and younger students who are accompanied by an adult. Students can get certificates and earn community service hours. Rain cancels.
Tours: At 11:00AM, tours of the Wildlife Reserve will be offered to participants to give them a broader picture of the Wildlife Reserve.
Questions: 213.500-4143 (Muriel) or Paula (818.481-5605).
