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, May 18, 2017 to help remove invasive European searocket, iceplant, and New Zealand spinach from recently restored dunes near Abbotts Lagoon. You may also email Cody Ender or call 415-464-5226 for more details.On Thursday, May 18, the group will meet at 9:30 am at the "Antenna Farm" interpretative exhibit pullout just south of the North District Operations Center on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.

We'll work until about 1:30 pm with a lunch break at the site. Please bring warm and wind-stopping layers, water, and lunch and snacks. 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. Please note: There will not be a workday on Thursday, June 15, 2017. 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. Be sure to check this page or contact us every month in the week prior to the workday for the latest details concerning where to meet.
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.
California Invasive Species Action Week
The 2017 California Invasive Species Action Week will be observed from Saturday, June 3, through Sunday, June 11, 2017. 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.
