Celebrate the transition from Fall to Winter with a morning of hands-on stewardship on the watershed! Our grassy meadows are home to sun-loving plants and animals and are hunting grounds for birds of prey. The fruits of our open canopy hardwoods – oak, bay and madrone trees – nourish abundant forest wildlife. Help us improve these oak woodland and grassland habitats near Phoenix Lake by removing invasive French broom. Uncover healthy plant communities that support a high diversity of wildlife, preparing them for success in the new year.
We will start our morning overlooking Phoenix Lake. If driving, please arrive at Natalie Coffin Greene Park between 8:40 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. We will have the gate open to allow volunteers to drive up the fire road and park next to the dam. Folks arriving after 9 a.m. or leaving before noon will need to manage their own parking.
Registration is encouraged but not required. The event is family-friendly! Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and volunteers under age 18 must bring a permission form signed by a parent or guardian. Tools, gloves, snacks and water are provided. Please dress for variable weather and bring a personal water bottle. We welcome the rain and will only cancel if extreme winds or heavy downpour is expected! Call 415-945-1128 after 7am the morning of the event to hear event updates.
