Experimental Forest Workday

(International Joke Day)

This is not a joke!!! To celebrate “International Joke Day” we are hosting a trip up into the Experimental Forest in the Verdugo Mountains and we have provided you with Tree Jokes.

1. How do trees access the Internet?
Answer: They log on.
2. Do you want a brief explanation of an acorn?
Answer: In a nutshell, it’s an oak tree.
3. What is ever tree’s least favorite month?
Answer: SepTIMMMMMBERRRR!!

We will spend three hours in the Forest including the travel time.  Work will include watering of the trees, and weeding around the established plants. Our trip will be up the undeveloped Hostetter Fire Road into the mountains. This road requires high clearance vehicles.

Please wear a hat, sturdy shoes, and protective clothing. Bring water, gloves, and sunscreen. Snacks and drinks will be provided. There are not restroom facilities available.

The fire gate will close at 9:15 a.m., so please be prompt. Gates will reopen at 12:00 p.m. (Conclusion of the event)

Space is limited. You must call (818) 548-3795 to R.S.V.P.

This Trails and Open Space Program is sponsored by the Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation.
