Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition to take on some work in beautiful Glen Canyon, nestled in the heart of San Francisco's world-famous hills!
Attendees will be taking on the following projects:
Removal of a redundant silt fence near the Islais Ck swamp
Trail maintenance including brush pruning and closure of social trails
Glass and trash clean-up
Clearing of paths and walkways
Where is Glen Canyon Park?
Glen Canyon Park is located in the Glen Park neighbourhood of San Francisco, 10 minutes flat walk from the Glen Park BART station. TheCrag.com provides a great overview and directions. The park is a popular spot on weekends so parking can be challenging - BART is recommended if at all possible.
We'll be meeting in the middle of the park, at the northern end of the dirt road that runs alongside Islais Creek, just across from the Silvertree camp / Glen Ridge pre-school building.
Safety - We are HUGE on safety! There will be a safety talk at 10am on the day of the event. Please note that we require all participants to be present for the safety talk and wear closed toe shoes. Unfortunately, we cannot allow anyone to participate that does not wear closed toe shoes and/or attend the safety talk.
Food - Lunch will be provided for all volunteers. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions.
Water - Drinking fountains are available up near Christopher Playground and down at the Rec Centre. Both are 5 mins walk from the project areas, so to save time please bring a full water bottle.
Tools - We will be getting tools and gloves from the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Dept, but feel free to bring your own work gloves if you prefer.
Bathrooms - There are bathrooms up near Christopher Playground and down at the Rec Centre. Both are 5 mins walk from the project areas.
Clothing - Sturdy, closed toe shoes are mandatory. The canyon can be quite foggy and windy in the summer months - a windproof jacket is recommended.
