Nurturing Nature at Guadalupe Oak Grove Park

Dave Poeschel shows how it’s to be done

Thanks to all our volunteers who came out last Sunday the 15th., including our District 10 San Jose City Councilmember-elect Matt Mahan, to give the tender loving care needed to keep our natural oasis thriving!

Matt and Jason returning from the top of Blue Oak Hill after leading youth to plant a dozen sites with the acorns that mighty blue oaks, quercus douglassii, will grow — and the 40 lb. bucket of water needed for each oak!

Volunteers provided the watering needed for the many small acorn sprouts, as the rains had not yet provided the moisture that was needed.

New, wire cages, were placed around the growth of small sprouts so that they will be able to thrive in the natural environment.
