Event description

Description

We will be helping restore and maintain the Bolsa Chica Wetlands by helping with invasive plant removal, debris disposal, and/or native plant installation. A volunteer waiver will need to be signed prior to volunteering (You will be receiving another Eventbrite email confirming your spot titled ‘Public Volunteer Service Day with the Bolsa Chica Conservancy’). Note: You cannot bring dogs, bikes, or drones to this event since they are prohibited while on the reserve. Registered EIP members will receive a free lunch after the volunteer event.

NOTES:

  • What to Wear: Please wear closed-toed shoes, as we will be working in off-road terrain and closed-toed shoes are extremely important for safety. It is highly suggested to bring sun protection, such as sunglasses, a hat, and/or sunscreen to protect you from the sun's rays. Bringing layered clothing is also recommended, as weather here at the wetlands can change rapidly from cool and overcast to clear and sunny in as short as an hour. Wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty since there will be a lot of dirt and vegetation. Also, bringing water is also strongly recommended.

  • Parking: Please arrive 15 - 20 minutes early to secure parking. The parking lot is fairly limited. Carpooling is encouraged.
