Join us for Make a Difference Day
Join the City of Fremont Environmental Services Division as we do our part for Make a Difference Day at Sabercat Historical Park. Sabercat Historical Park is one of the CityÕs newest attractions and runs along Sabercat Creek slot canyon in the Mission San Jose district. The park features a walking trail that runs east to west from Pine Street (beneath Paseo Padre Parkway) toward Interstate 680.

For the Make a Difference Day Ð Sabercat Habitat Restoration Project, we are looking for volunteers to help us weed, remove dead plants, reconstruct protective plant barriers, apply mulch treatments, and plant new native vegetation. We already have a great show of support from various community groups, including the CityÕs Environmental Sustainability Commission, Niles Rotary, Green Club, and Azevada Elementary School. Would you like to join us?

Come check out this great natural wonder and help us ÒMake a Difference.Ó Plants, tools, rubber gloves, water, and pizza will be provided for all volunteers. Please bring sunscreen, hats, and gardening gloves. The Sabercat Habitat Restoration Project takes place on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The meeting location is at Paseo Padre Parkway and Quema Drive. For more information, contact the CityÕs Barbara Silva at or (510) 494-4575.ÊÊÊÊ
