Friends of Beaconsfield Canyon – Creek to Bay Volunteer Day 

• Saturday
• 9:00am-Noon

Mark your calendar and join us at Beaconsfield Canyon for “Earth Day Autumn”—Creek to Bay Day–on Sept. 23. We’ll have a large dumpster, so we can do some major brush clearing to make the canyon more fire safe. There are lots of invasives to pull as well thanks to the abundance of rain this winter. The more hands the better!

We supply gloves, tools, water, snacks. Wear long sleeves, long pants, and shoes or boots with good treads for slippery ground. 

Meet at 2639 Beaconsfield Place, just off Chelton Drive in Montclair. Walk in on the dirt road. Please RSVP if bringing four or more people. To RSVP, obtain a liability waiver in advance, or for more info, email
