Streamside Restoration Project Saturday, February 5th!
Contact: John Dell'Osso, 415-464-5135
The Habitat Restoration Team focuses on coastal, dune, and stream restoration for endangered species such as the western snowy plover, myrtle silverspot butterfly, California red-legged frog and many endangered plants which support wildlife. The Habitat Restoration Team has a set work day on the first Saturday of every month and also schedules other dates for groups.
The Stream Team is a group of volunteers dedicated to improving fish habitat through streamside restoration. They perform a variety of tasks including willow planting, fence construction, removal and maintenance, non-native plant removal, and ecological monitoring. The Stream Team usually meets on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.
Join the Point Reyes Stream and Habitat Restoration Teams in partnership with the Marin Conservation Corps for a great day of streamside restoration on Saturday February 5th! Contact Mark Rogers at 415-464-5223 or by email, or Bethany Craig at 415-464-5206 or by email to find out more information and to sign up for Saturday’s event. Everyone is welcome- we will be meeting at the Bear Valley Visitor Center at 10:00 am to carpool out to the site.
