Join Marin County Parks and Marin Municipal Water District for our annual Bald Hill Broom Bust! Removing invasive broom gives native plants and trees a better opportunity to thrive, improves habitat, reduces fire fuel load and enhances the beautiful views. This project involves a moderate level of activity and is suitable for all ages. Dress in layers you can get dirty: long pants, long-sleeved shirt, and a hat or visor. Wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Please bring gloves (if you have them). We will provide snacks; lunch will be served at noon. There are several moderately strenuous hikes or rides one could take to get to the work site. A bike group typically meets at San Anselmo Coffee Roasters in the morning to ride to the site (please call to get details). A guided hiking group will leave Deer Park at 8:30am. Everyone will meet at 9:00am at the intersection of Yolanda Trail and Worn Springs Fire Road. Questions: contact Volunteer Coordinator Greg Reza at (415) 473-3778 or GReza@marincounty.org. DIRECTIONS: from Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take exit 450B for Sir Francis Drake Blvd west to Fairfax 3.4 miles. Turn left onto Pacheco Ave, turn right onto Broadway and make the first left onto Bolinas Rd. Turn left onto Porteus Ave 0.4 miles, follow to Deer Park parking lot.
