Who: Contra Costa County Flood Control, Supervisor Candace Andersen, the Walnut Creek Watershed Council, and the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District
What: Cutting down and removing Arundo from a section of the San Ramon Creek in Danville
Where: Hap Magee Ranch Park, 1025 La Gonda Way, Danville, CA
When: Saturday, October 20th from 9am – Noon.
The most invasive weed endangering creeks throughout Contra Costa County is Arundo.
It is a bamboo-looking plant that grows at a rapid rate and can take over native vegetation. Arundo can cause erosion and bank failures by encroaching on the waterway.
It provides habitat for rodents, is a fire and flood hazard, and is very hard to remove and prevent re-establishment. Help remove this highly invasive plant and promote the restoration on native plants.
