Volunteer Outside in Redwood City

Sunday, April 14 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Come enjoy the outdoors and work to restore a neighborhood park! Volunteers should expect to support the restoration of this California ecosystem by sawing and clipping cotoneaster, a woody invasive plant species. We will also pull and clip a viney invasive species, ivy. We will end our time together with a walk that showcases plants growing in Stulsaft Park!

This project will be co-led by San Mateo County’s Youth Climate Ambassadors (YCA). Four local high school students will help lead the event and teach about biodiversity in Stulstaft Park. Youth Climate Ambassadors (YCA) is a program of the San Mateo Country Sustainability Department.

Accessibility considerations include hiking on uneven and steep terrain, being outside for the entire length of the event, and kneeling, squatting, and standing to pull invasive plants. Volunteers will be supplied with gloves, kneelers, and all tools, including clippers, and small saws.

Visit Grassroots Ecology’s Stulsaft Park page to learn more about the ecosystem and accessibility considerations.

Waivers/Registration: All attendees must be registered individually and have approved the online waiver through this Eventbrite page. Youth under 18 must have their legal guardian approve the waiver on their behalf. Please register here.

Transportation for Stulsaft Park: The lower entrance to Stulsaft Park is mainly accessible via car and bike, but the 278 SamTrans bus goes to the Farm Hill entrance of Stulsaft Park. If taking the bus, get off at Farm Hill & Glennan Dr. stop and then walk through the park to get to the lower entrance meeting space. There is street parking for cars near the intersection of Goodwin Ave. and Mitchell Way.

Meeting Space: Meet by the native plant and animal mural/storage unit at the lower entrance to Stulsaft Park. There are multiple drinking fountains available and there is a restroom that is a five-minute walk from the meeting spot. The work area is less than a ten-minute walk from the meeting spot.

There is cell service within some areas of the park.

Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes. If you have accessibility concerns (e.g. allergies, limited mobility, learning differences), our programs are flexible and we are happy to work with you.
