Work day this weekend for nearly-finished Deer Creek trail stretch

After two years of work on the Deer Creek Tribute Trail, the Friends of Deer Creek is nearly finished with restoring the Little Deer Creek stretch.

The group is inviting the public to a work day Saturday to remove the final patches of non-native English ivy, install erosion control, and prepare for native re-vegetation.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at the Pioneer Park tennis courts on Nimrod Street in Nevada City. Bring water, gloves, and any tools such as garden rakes, shovels, loppers, hand saws and hammers. Friends of Deer Creek will provide snacks.

Another work day is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7. Projects include planting native species where English ivy was removed.

For more information, call Matt Freitas or Kelly Hickman at (530) 265-6090 ext. 201, or e-mail Matt@FriendsOfDeerCreek.Org.

Signs are planned for the trail, but a presentation scheduled for Thursday’s planning commission meeting has been postponed.
