Habitat Restoration: Keep Broom out of the Forest

Saturday, February 16, 9 am to Noon

Madrone, oak, coyote brush and toyon are supporting a kaleidoscope of fungus in the little forest on top of Shaver Grade. Surrounding this wonderland is the ever-threatening French broom. Join us in our quest to keep this one species from upsetting the diverse native ecosystem. Meet at the gravel parking lot just past Sky Oaks Ranger Station. Day parking passes will be provided.


Please bring a water bottle, closed toe shoes and clothes for variable weather. Bring your lunch. We will provide tools, breakfast snacks and water!

Suitable for ages 8 and up.  Minors under the age of 16 must have a guardian present. Those ages 16-18 must have permission from a guardian.

For more information please check our webpage www.marinwater.org/volunteer or if you have any questions please email us at volunteerprogram@marinwater.org.
