Five Islands Ready for Winter

A big THANK YOU to the volunteers who came out Nov. 14th and worked for several hours pruning, clearing brush, cleaning the pathway and the Antje Hirt memorial bench. The crew consisted of Christine Noordam, Michele La Plante, Kelly Shepherd, Linda Wilson, Dave Poeschel, Dan and Ian Judd, Rich Grialou, and Christopher Reed.  Now the native plants in all five islands and the pathway are ready for a winter nap.

Special thanks to Ernie Hirt who came out to enjoy the bench under the oak tree that commemorates his late wife.  Ernie and his wife were among the 46 neighbors who originally formed MFPA to save our park trees from the PG&E chain saws back in 2010.

Once again, thank you all so much!

Linda Wilson,

President of the Martin-Fontana Parks Association

*For those who don’t know where the Five Islands are, they are located at the west end of Jeffrey Fontana Park. They consist of 5 individual native plant islands.
