has some large rocks that threaten vehicle's oil pans, transmissions, exhaust systems, etc. This IMPD project will break up the larger rocks, remove them and some others, and fill and level the holes.
It is scheduled for 7-9 on March 5 so that we can finish before the weekend crowd arrives. We will provide wheelbarrow, rock bars, shovels, pick, and tamping tools. We'll also arrange for an electric jack-hammer and generator to make shorter work of the rock breaking effort.
Rubbish need only be moved to the edge of the parking area and good fill material is nearby on the creek bank.

The theme of this year’s It’s My Park Day is “Love Your Park” so let’s show nearby Bull Creek Park some love because it definitely needs it. Join in for a fun and
rewarding morning of volunteering as we repair trails and parking lots, and clear out invasive species (ligustrum, mostly) that are running wild. This will be fairly energetic work, so come prepared: old clothes, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a refillable water bottle (water will be provided).

Please join us.
To do so you sign up at:
