Summer 2022

Members of HFSG, neighbors on Campus Drive, and VIP visits from the Berkeley Fire Department have kept the group busy even in the summer days. Tremendous progress was made on Campus Drive and above the Temple of Wings. Victory can be declared on one section of Campus Drive, where the understory and bark was removed over five Sunday.
