Come enjoy the outdoors and make a difference with Mountains Restoration Trust and Heal the Bay!
The Arroyo Sequit creek at Leo Carrillo State Park is being restored so endangered Southern California Steelhead Trout can use it for spawning. Two concrete barriers are being removed by State Parks, it's up to volunteers like you to take out the invasive plants. Cape Ivy is the primary target; it's toxic to fish and other aquatic life so removing it is key to restoring the historic spawning grounds.
The best part of this event is once you're done restoring the creek, the beach is right there waiting for you!
What to Bring: Bring a snack, water, sunscreen and/or hat, and wear sturdy footwear. Long pants and a long-sleeved shirt is highly recommended. Prepare to get dirty. Gloves and tools will be provided but you may bring your own work gloves if desired.
This event is open to volunteers age 10 and over. Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For those under 18 a parent or guardian must fill out and sign a State Park Juvenile Volunteer Form.
All volunteers must fill a waiver form (extras are available at the event).
