Event Details

Invasive Species Removal at McClellan Ranch Preserve: A Watershed Awareness Project

The Watershed Stewards Program's (WSP) mission is to conserve, restore, and enhance anadromous watersheds for future generations by linking education with high quality, scientific practices. A program of the California Conservation Corps, WSP is one of the most productive programs for future employment in natural resources. WSP is administered by California Volunteers and sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Who: Volunteers of all ages are welcome; minors under 18 require  Watershed Stewards Program signed waiver and children under 12 require an accompanying adult unless prior approval is obtained from the workday supervisor. Groups may contact Melisa Cambron Perez for their own special program dates/hours. This is a rain or shine event!

What: Volunteers will help with habitat restoration work such as invasive plant removal and benefit from this work by

  • Helping enhance the habitat for threatened species of Steelhead Trout
  • Learning about and how to identify stream health
