    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 on Thursday, May 21, 2015, at the Point Reyes Headlands to remove iceplant, and maybe veldt grass.

    Please meet promptly at 9:30 am at the Lighthouse parking lot. (Directions from the Bear Valley Visitor Center to the Lighthouse.)

    Please bring warm and wind-stopping layers, rain gear if the forecast warrants it, water, snacks, and/or lunch, and clothes that can get dirty. Tools and gloves will be provided.

    To ensure that enough tools are provided for all volunteers, please RSVP by 4:30 pm, Wednesday, May 20 by emailing Ellen Hamingson or by calling 415-464-5196. If fewer than four confirm and the workday has to be cancelled, Ellen will send an email to those who have RSVPed.

    The Third Thursday Weeders meet on the third Thursday of most months 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.
