34 volunteers including Club members – Laura Burrus, Harold Hoogasian, Kathryn McCall, Lilian Tsi-Stielstra, and Scott Stielstra – braved an unpredictable, stormy Saturday to work at Rotary Meadow. Unfortunately, the weather did not permit any work at Rotary Meadow, but the volunteers were divided into three groups and tasked with clearing an area into which a kiosk will be built, planting, removing weeds, or clearing trails.
Eight of the volunteers were students from the San Francisco State Biology Department, which is chaired by our Club member, Laura Burrus. The activity was perfect for them as they are currently studying plant taxonomy. Amy Kaeser of Sutro Stewards kept the students on their toes by quizzing them about the scientific names of different native plants.  The students are all eager to keep partnering with Rotary on service projects such as these.
