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, April 16, 2015, to help remove veldt grass near the Lighthouse parking lot. At 12:30 pm, to celebrate the fourth anniversary of this program, we'll break for a potluck and enjoy the rare plant habitat we're restoring.

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, clothes that can get dirty, and food to share during the fourth anniversary potluck. Tools and gloves will be provided.

To ensure that enough tools are provided for all volunteers, please RSVP by 4:30 pm, Wednesday, April 15 by emailing Ellen Hamingson or by calling 415-464-5196.

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.
