The team split into several different groups to do work on riparian areas. The group that David was in went to Mattox Canyon where they pulled Sweetclover and Rabbits Foot. Brian, Danny and Meagan's group went to Mill Canyon near the Pacific Crest Trail. Brian and Danny's group went close to the top of a mountain where North Fork Camp Ground is loacated. A stream started near the camp ground and we followed it until the stream forked. We met the other group that Meagan was working with where the stream forked. Both of the groups at Mill Canyon found Prickly Lettuce, Sow Thistle, Rabbits Foot, several different kinds of Mustards and Saltcedar which is the highest priority invasive that we are looking for. Brian and Danny's group had a very enjoyable day because they went down the stream from the top of the mountain. They had to climb down small waterfalls and manover their way through overgrown areas.

The team spent the day at Mill Canyon where the members split up to work on different riparian areas. Meagan and David went with one of the Weed Crew members to a riparian area where they pulled Saltcedar, Prickly Lettuce, Sow Thistle, Rabbits Foot and took the seed pods off of the Spanish Broom that they found. Brian and Danny went to another riparian area with a Weed Crew member where they followed a stream from the road that they drove in on. They found several types of Mustard, Rabbits Foot, Prickly Lettuce and Sow Thistle.
