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, October 20, 2016. Please note: The workday is no longer scheduled for removing iceplant in the Lighthouse area. Instead, the Weeders will remove sea rocket plants that are threatening the recovery of Tidestrom's lupine in the dune restoration area south of Abbotts Lagoon. Please email Carolyn Longstreth for more details.Please email Carolyn Longstreth in advance to RSVP. The Weeders meet near the work site at 9:30 am and work until 1:30 pm with a lunch break.
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.
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.
If you are interested in helping restore habitat at Point Reyes, but can't participate on Thursdays, join us for Habitat Restoration Program workdays, which are held on either the second or last Sunday of the most months.
