Stewardship Squad always enjoys returning to Luther Burbank Park with the Mountain to Sound Greenway Trust. The restoration work has been progressing over the years- continued efforts to remove noxious species will always be needed (birds will always drop blackberry and ivy seeds from berries via their droppings) but a significant plateau of sustainability has been reached in our primary work area under the big Oregon ash tree. It is fun to branch out into new work sites, as was done this time.
Calkins Point at the north end of the park is a charming, quiet and shallow swimming beach, highly recommended for families. Further south in the park is the more-popular lifeguarded swimming beach with buoys, it also has a sandy beach and a little bit of shade.
Thanks to everyone for the great work and special thanks to the folks who sent in photos you see here (I had to make a rare event-absence). You can also have a look at all the terrific events Squad has done here over the years. We hope to see you soon.
