Habitat Restoration: Saplings and Salmon
January 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us in Lagunitas Creek to enhance salmon habitat by planting native trees!
The goal of this event is to increase native tree cover above a newly created flood plain channel to provide shade and habitat for endangered Coho salmon which use our watershed to spawn. Increased tree cover will keep stream temperatures cool and provide lots of insects for young salmon to prey upon, while tree roots will provide sanctuary from fast-flowing water.
We’ll be planting rain or shine, so bring layers and be prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Be sure to wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes or rain boots and bring lots of water. This event is kid-friendly and open to everyone. Free lunch and coffee will be provided. RSVP and send any questions to volunteerprogram@marinwater.
Directions from Hwy 101: Head West along Sir Francis Drake toward Fairfax, CA, for approximately 19 miles. Make a right onto Platform Bridge Road, then make an immediate left onto the bridge to get on to the Cross Marin Trail.
Before coming to the watershed, please call 415-945-1195 to check for road or trail closures due to heavy rain.
