Santa Monica Mountains Weed War
Sunday, September 14, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 12:15 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Weed War – an unending engagement started by the California Native Plant Society in the early 1980s to help control the spread of invasive non-native plant species that hog the land and provide no value for the survival of native animal species. Join Mountains Restoration Trust, TreePeople, and the California Native Plant Soceity as we revisit restoration sites so beautifully planted by volunteers earlier in the year and in years past. It’s exciting to see the growth and speculate on what native critters now have a home, food, and shelter in an area that was a fire-prone field of dead weeds. Join us for a satisfying day of restoring a natural ecosystem. Receive community service credit.
