HERE AT POINT REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE
Volunteer! Once or twice a month, volunteers gather at Point Reyes to help vegetation management staff to remove invasive weeds and help restore the health of natural habitats. To get involve, call the park's restoration biologist at 415-464-5196 or visit our Volunteer: Habitat Restoration page.
Volunteers may also assist with related activities beneficial to habitat restoration, such as rare plant or stream and tidepool monitoring, native seed collection plant propagation, and stream stabilization. For more information, contact the park's volunteer coordinator at 415-464-5225.
Visit the San Francisco Bay Area Network's Target Invasive Plants page to view images of some of these high-priority species and to download a set of plant-out-of-place cards that were designed to help with the identification of new invaders of Point Reyes National Seashore while exploring the park. If you see any of these plants in the park, take a photo of it or provide a detailed description and note precisely where you found the plant, and then LET US KNOW! Contact Ellen Hamingson at 415-464-5196 or by email.
If you see these plants-or any other unusual plants-growing in the open space lands of the Bay Area, contact the landowner, your county agriculture department, or a cooperative extension agent. Or report confirmed infestations directly to the Bay Area Early Detection Network.
