Description

The Watershed Stewards Program and Marin Municipal Water District present: Restoration in the Redwoods!

Hosted by Brenna and Katey, this program will focus on restoring the riparian redwood forest. We will be working alongside Lagunitas Creek, a wild Coho, Chinook salmon, and Steelhead trout bearing waterway in Samuel P. Taylor State Park. The campground is a fondly familiar place for some of you, with stunning redwoods and winsome mycota and flora.

It will be a productive and fun day of invasive grass removal and mulching. Erharta erecta is an invasive grass seen throughout the park, suppressing native grasses. Volunteers will be laying down straw and redwood duff as natural cover for the removal sites. A short interpretation hike throughout the park will end the program.

FAQs

Light breakfast and lunch will be provided for volunteers. Yes, that's right, food!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Enter the park at Camp Taylor sign and stop at the ranger kiosk to pick up a parking pass. DO NOT pay for parking, you're a volunteer! Continue to the right until the second set of bathrooms. A canopy with the sign up table will be stationed there. Park in paved, lined spaces only. DO NOT park off pavement. And lastly, if you are coming as a group, please carpool and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions :)
