Third Thursday Weeders

                                                          Save Native Plant Habitat at Point Reyes with the “Third Thursday Weeders”

                                                                                      November 19, 2015 at 9:30 (no weeding in December)

If you hate to see beautiful native vegetation being displaced by invasive exotic species, the “Third Thursday Weeders” are for you! Spend a companionable day at beautiful Point Reyes and help us protect important plant habitat in the Point Reyes National Seashore. The Weeders meet regularly on the 3rd Thursday of every month.The location of each work party is set in consultation with Seashore staff. Over the past 4 years, we have removed infestations of iceplant,veldt grass, European beachgrass, perennial pepperweed, cape ivy and Napa star-thistle. We have a good time and it’s highly rewarding to see the native plants surging back in these areas! A couple of photos are attached. 

To sign up and receive notification of the meeting places, please contact contact Carolyn Longstreth at or 669-7514.

Bring plenty of water, lunch and snacks, warm and wind-stopping layers, sturdy shoes, work clothes.  No shorts or open-toed shoes.
The Park provides tools and gloves.

                                                                                          Hope to see you there!
