The Giacomini Wetland Restoration Project has started construction. The Point Reyes National Seashore, along with its partner, Point Reyes National Seashore Association (PRNSA), are now inviting local residents and visitors to be part of the restoration process by planting newly restored wetlands this fall.

The National Seashore and PRNSA will be planting thousands of saltwater and freshwater grasses, herbs, sedges, rushes and shrubs at two of the newly restored wetland areas at the Giacomini Ranch and near Olema Creek. Individuals, organizations, schools and other groups are invited to come and help with planting on community planting days scheduled for Fridays starting November 9 through December 14. One or two Saturday planting dates may also occur if there is enough interest. Other dates are open by prior arrangement.

By getting your hands dirty, you will be an important part of a project that will have extensive, lasting benefits for the Tomales Bay watershed. Please contact Leslie Adler-Ivanbrook by email or at 415-464-5910.
