    Save Native Plant Habitat at Point Reyes with the Third Thursday Weeders

    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.

    You are invited to join the Third Thursday Weeders workday and participate in the California Invasive Species Action Week on August 21. The group will target smaller iceplant patches along the trail from the Lighthouse parking lot toward 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, August 21, at the Lighthouse parking lot.
    Directions from the Bear Valley Visitor Center to the Lighthouse.

    This workday will happen if at least four people confirm participation by 4 pm on Wednesday afternoon, August 20. 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 may be helpful. The park will provide tools and gloves. The workday usually goes until 1:30 pm with a lunch break. (If you need to leave after lunch, this is an easy-access site.)

    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.
