Event description

Description

Antonelli Pond has an uncommon ecology in Santa Cruz County; it’s located in an urban setting but hosts a freshwater wetland habitat community. With such close proximity to the city and its ecological benefits, Antonelli, is a very popular space for many different recreational activities including birding, fishing, dog-walking and occasional boating. With so many uses this open space has its issues with graffiti, littering, and misuse. Neighbors and community members who want to take pride in their surrounding neighborhood can help by being Volunteer Stewards of the Pond. By forming scheduled patrols of the area and reporting issues, you can help the LTSCC maintain this space for students and community members.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about the Pond and things they can do to help at a one-time training session. This will also be a great way to meet with fellow parents, interact with surrounding neighbors and meet staff of the Land Trust.

Volunteer Duties: Volunteer tasks can be performed on your own schedule. We ask that volunteers have room in their schedules to visit the pond at least once a week for one hour. You can use your time to monitor and report issues you will also learn how you can clean up graffiti and loose litter, safely, if you choose to do so during your patrols.

We require all volunteers to come to one training session before volunteering. Please RSVP to one of the training sessions listed. If you cannot make either but still wish to volunteer please contact Ginger, with the LTSCC, info below.

Training session Details:

  • Meet at the pond Kiosk off of Delaware Ave. You will see a blue porta-potty the kiosk is adjacent to that.
  • There is ample parking along Delaware ave and Shaffer Rd.
  • Please prepare to take a short .5 mile hike.
