Guadalupe Oak Grove Park’s Vegetation Management Plan Sprouts

Blue oak acorns and buckeye seeds turn into sprouts at Guadalupe Oak Grove Park, giving life to the park’s Vegetation Management Plan, which is designed to preserve and enhance natural resources, while integrating and balancing the current, passive recreational use for residents. In the fall of 2018, volunteers sourced acorns and buckeye seeds from the park, then planted and cared for the seeds. The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services’ Volunteer Management Unit held a volunteer event on March 16, focused on clearing invasive weeds and identifying the growth of 49 new oak and buckeye trees. With care and watering, these trees will become mighty oaks and native buckeyes, creating a shady and rich environment for future generations to enjoy. For more information, please contact Justin Long, PRNS Deputy Director, at 408-793-5579.
