Join the Marin Chapter California Native Plant Society's "Third Thursday Weeders" to spend a day at beautiful Point Reyes and help tackle invasive weeds that threaten important plant habitat in the Point Reyes National Seashore.
The Thursday, March 20 workday will take place in the botanically special area near the Lighthouse parking lot; hopefully, spring wildflowers will be starting. We'll be weeding out small to medium-sized patches of iceplant and, if anyone prefers, veldt grass.
Meet at 9:30 am on Thursday, March 20 at the Lighthouse parking lot. We'll work until about 1:30 pm with a lunch break.
This workday will happen if at least four people confirm participation by 3:30 pm on Wednesday afternoon, March 19. Please RSVP by emailing Ellen Hamingson or by calling 415-464-5196.
Please bring warm and wind-stopping layers, water, snacks and/or lunch, and clothes that can get dirty. The park will provide tools and gloves. The workday usually goes until 1:30 pm with a lunch break.
The Third Thursday Weeders meet on the third Thursday of every month (except December) at 9:30 am, usually at a trailhead near the work location. They visit beautiful sites to conduct important follow-up removal to maintain and enhance large-scale restoration projects. The workday usually involves a chance to view native plants—often including rare species—that are recolonizing the areas.
