The Friends of Five Creeks Weed Warriors continue to eradicate two of the creek's most invasive species from the south creek: Himalayan blackberries and Algerian ivy. On this visit, they brought along a group of Japanese students who are visiting from Kyoto. The students are attending a class to learn the English language through environmental restoration. They are learning interesting words such as invasive species, eradication, erosion, and urban runoff.
It's early summer in the garden and photographer Geoffery Ansel Agrons has returned to find many interesting subjects.
Girls from the neighborhood came to the garden for some relaxation last week as they "fish" in the Redwood Grove.
U.C. Berkeley's Conservation Resource Science graduates celebrated this year's graduation at the Garden. Although a little cool in the morning, it was a beautiful ceremony and each graduate received a living diploma: a tanbark oak seedling.
With faculty, parents and friends looking on, graduates from the U.C. Berkeley Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning Dept. received numerous awards for the work they have done in the past few years at Berkeley.
