Event description

Description

Join the OSA Land Steward team as we install wildlife-safe fence at the Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve, easily accessible at the western end of Palm Ave. in Morgan Hill. Coyote Valley OSP is home to burrowing owls and other raptors, bobcats, and many more native animals and serves as an important wildlife migration corridor.

The Open Space Authority provides all the necessary tools, safety equipment, and training for the day, as well as water, coffee, and lunch (sandwiches, chips, and fruit). Please let us know what type of sandwich you prefer (turkey, vegetarian with cheese, or vegan) or if you are bringing your own lunch.

The dress code for safety and comfort is sturdy close-toed shoes, longs pants (no shorts, sweats, or tights), and layers for your upper body. We'll work through a light rain but severe weather cancels the event.

There is a vault toilet onsite for bathroom breaks, and a hand-washing station.

As with all Open Space Authority preserves, parking is free!

Youth volunteers (Aged 14-17) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during the Land Steward work. Volunteers under the age of 14 can not be accomodated.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Volunteers must be at least 14 years old, and those aged 14-17 MUST have a parent or legal guardian present during the entire Land Steward activity. Volunteers under the age of 14 can not be accomodated.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Parking is free and easy at the Coyote Valley OSP. The VTA bus #68 runs along Hale Dr., and stops at Palm Ave. The preserve entrance is about a 10-15 minute walk from the bus stop.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Please do not bring any pets, and there is no smoking or alcohol allowed in the preserve.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Reply via Eventbrite, or contact Dana Litwin, Volunteer Programs Administrator, at dlitwin@openspaceauthority.org or 408-224-7476

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, we will have a list of registered Land Stewards and there will be a sign-in sheet.
