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.

There will not be a workday on Thursday, November 20, 2014.

You are invited to join the Third Thursday Weeders workday on December 18. Contact Ellen Hamingson after December 15 for details concerning the December workday.

Please bring warm and wind-stopping layers, water, snacks and/or lunch, and clothes that can get dirty. Stinging nettles and salmonberry are common in parts of this site, so please be prepared with tough clothing to withstand these prickly plants. We will not encounter poison oak. Ellen will bring some raingear if light-moderate rain is expected, but please contact her in case of heavy rain. 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.
