Starthistle Eradication Saturday June 8th

When: Saturday June 8th, 9 – 11 am.

Where: Gristmill – Sign in table will be in the Gristmill parking lot. (Entrance off 9513 Mira Del Rio Dr)

Pick up your complimentary water and a snack, sponsored by BRECA.

Please remember to wear sturdy shoes, long pants and gloves, as well as hat and sunscreen.

Please help with removal of this invasive species. Your annual efforts have significantly reduced the spread of star thistle in the Gristmill area. Now is a good time to pull this weed. It pulls out readily and can be tossed back onto the ground. No need to bag it.

Thank you for helping keep Gristmill and the American River Parkway beautiful!

2019 Annual General Meeting

The BRECA Annual General Meeting time is here, and we have a great lineup for you! This year’s theme is “Emergency Preparedness”. With all of the disasters that have plagued our state recently, it seemed like a timely topic to address. Fires, floods, power outages, storms, … any number of natural or man-made disasters… what if they happened HERE? Would YOU be prepared??

Attend this year’s Annual General Meeting to find out everything you wanted to know but might have been afraid, or not even known, to ask!
