Help Kids at the Lake Chabot Shoreline

Volunteers help clear tules along the shores of Lake Chabot.

Kids are coming to Lake Chabot soon for the Youth Fishing Derby, and we need your help with a little shoreline improvement so they can reach the water.  This event will take place on Saturday, March 17, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the boat launch in Dan Foley Community Park. Wear sturdy clothes and shoes (waders if you have them), hat, sunscreen, and gloves. We’ll provide water and refreshments, as well as any tools that are needed. Enter the park at the east end of North Camino Alto, off Tuolumne past the Sutter Solano Medical Center. Please RSVP by emailing or calling (707) 652-7812.

Here at the Alliance, we are enjoying the early spring weather and looking forward to spending some more time outside. Here’s what’s coming up this month:

San Francisco Bay Flyway Festival    Saturday & Sunday, February 10-11, from 9 – 4, Mare Island. We are looking for volunteers to help staff the Alliance table at the Festival’s Wildlife Expo. It’s a great way to experience the festival, meet new people, and tell them a bit about what the Alliance does in Vallejo (table will have explanatory materials, you don’t need special training!) If you’re interested, please email and we’ll find a shift that works for you.

Hanns Park Field Day   Saturday, February 17, 9 to noon, Hanns Park       We’ll be cleaning up an area of the park that doesn’t get a lot of attention: there are trash and undergrowth/fire suppression tasks to help GVRD with maintenance. Wear sturdy shoes, clothes that can get dirty, hat, sunscreen and gloves. We’ll provide tools and refreshments. Park in the Hanns Park parking lot on Skyline just off Redwood Parkway, walk half a block up the street and through the chain-gate on the left. Or, you can walk up the trail behind the bathrooms, which are visible from the parking lot. RSVP to
