We had our second clean up day at Macaulay Park. Will, the Volunteer Coordinator with SF Rec and Park, arrived early and used a power hose to clean off all of the playground equipment. That meant lots of weeding and pruning for us!
The trees along the back are covered in something Will called water suckers, a term I have never heard before. Apparently the water suckers just sap the energy from the trees and need to be removed. I thought they were just some vine growing around the trunk of the tree.
As I was pruning, I stumbled across a funny surprise! (photo coming soon)
It was a great day and we got a lot accomplished. Unfortunately, it was Will’s last day as our Volunteer Coordinator as he is going back to college in the fall.
Be sure to join us for the next clean up day scheduled on October 15th!
