Volunteers help protect and restore endangered plant and wildlife habitat at Abbotts Lagoon, the Lighthouse Bluffs, and other high value habitat areas at Point Reyes National Seashore. Visit some of the most beautiful areas in the park and learn about local plant ecology while you work alongside park staff to carry out ecological restoration projects. We encourage volunteers nine years of age and older of all backgrounds and experience levels to participate. Tools, gloves, and training are provided. Participants are advised to wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and other seasonally appropriate clothing, as well as to bring lunch and water. Get involved, meet new people, and make a positive impact on your environment!

Please join us for our next Habitat Restoration Program volunteer workday on Sunday, February 28, 2016. More details about this workday will be provided here soon.

Please note: There will be no workday in July 2016.

California Invasive Species Action Week
The 2016 California Invasive Species Action Week will be held Saturday, June 4, through Sunday, June 12, 2016. The goal of the Action Week is to increase public awareness and promote public participation in California's fight against invasive species. There are numerous ways for people to participate, either independently, or as part of an organized effort. For example, you can learn which invasive species are issues in your area, remove invasives from your property, select native plants for your garden, harvest them for food, or volunteer to remove invasives from a participating park. Kids, you can learn about an invasive species that threatens your favorite outdoor place, and enter the Department of Fish and Wildlife's "The Invader Files" youth art contest. Winners will be announced during the Action Week! Check out the CISAW web page for poster contest details and to find out how you can take action: www.wildlife.ca.gov/Conservation/Invasives/Action-Week.

The CISAW Schedule of Events will be filled with volunteer opportunities and events hosted by the Department of Fish and Wildlife, California's National and State Parks, and dedicated volunteer programs and organizations across the state. Check the Action Week web page to find a participating organization or event near you, or for details on hosting a project or event of your own!
