Vineyard Workday Planned
The StoneBarn Vineyard Conservancy will have a vineyard event at Deukmejian Wilderness Park on Saturday, April 2 from 8 a.m. to noon. The vines are bursting out all over, and need training on the trellising, a little leaf pruning, and some judicious weeding.
This will also be the start of planting of the historic vines that have been collected from cuttings of vines recently discovered in Dunsmore Canyon and from remnants of old vineyards around the valley. The Conservancy welcomes the public’s help in accomplishing these projects, as well as visiting the expanded commemorative vineyard.
Please bring a hat, water bottle, pruning shears, shovel, pick, bucket and gloves. Refreshments will be served at conclusion.
For further information, call Stuart or Marie at (818) 249-2414.
Presentation and Hike
There will be a one-hour presentation and a two-hour hike with Chris DeGroof from the Southwestern Herpetologists Society on April 2 from 9 a.m. to noon at Deukmejian Wilderness Park.
The morning starts with a discussion on the role that amphibians and reptiles play in the natural world. Please note that we are meeting in the Trails and Open Space Office (old Ranch House). We are then heading out on the trails to observe the local wildlife in the park.
