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.
On July 17, 2014, the group will target small iceplant patches near the parking lot and along the road working towards the Lighthouse. We have made very good progress in this area over the last few years and would like to eliminate several more of those troubling regrown patches to protect this important rare plant habitat.
Please meet at 9:30 am, Thursday July 17, at the Lighthouse parking lot.
This workday will happen if at least four people confirm participation by 3:30 pm on Wednesday afternoon, July 16. Please RSVP by emailing Ellen Hamingson or by calling 415-464-5196. Ellen will send a confirmation by the end of Wednesday to those who have responded.
Please bring warm and wind-stopping layers, water, snacks and/or lunch, and clothes that can get dirty. Knee pads and hiking poles may be helpful. 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.
