Every winter, folks descend upon the trails of Tamarancho and China Camp State Park for trail maintenence workdays. I’ve never seen this occur for the Marin watershed (which may be more of a function of me not being in the loop), but whether due to budget woes or the powers-that-be finally figuring out that the cycling community is generally very amenable to pitching in an helping if you ask for it, the webbernet just coughed up this announcement:
Join Marin Municipal Water District, Marin Bicycle Coalition and Marin Mountain Bike Patrol for a morning of Habitat Restoration on Mt Tamalpais. Help remove invasive plant species from oak woodland and grassland habitats. Every person has the chance to make a difference by practicing environmental stewardship. Give back to the land you enjoy so much and have fun while doing so!
Meet at the junction of Shaver Grade and Hidden Meadow Trail 9am on Saturday December 5th. Bike to the trail head or hike in from Natalie Coffin Green Park or Lake Lagunitas Picnic Area. The volunteer event runs from 9 until noon.
Please pre-register for the event so we will be prepared with ample tools, staff and snacks. Dress for changing weather and bring a hat, work shoes, a water bottle and lots of friends. We provide snacks, water, instruction and inspiration! Consider bringing your lunch to enjoy on the watershed after the volunteer event.
To register or for further information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (415) 945-1128 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . Heavy rain will cancel; call the volunteer line for cancellation information the morning of the event.
Don’t forget the Tecnu….
