Description

Wednesday Weed Warriors: Habitat Restoration at Pearson-Arastradero Preserve

Volunteers should expect to hike through the scenic rolling hills of Arastradero, remove invasive plant species throughout grassland and oak woodland ecosystems, and help maintain restoration zones by mulching, trimming, watering, weeding, etc.

Wednesday Weed Warriors is typically a small-group meetup, and tasks are often slower-paced and more detailed. Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with project staff, observe flora and fauna, and reflect on the beauty of nature in a serene environment.

Waivers/Registration: All participants must register & approve the online waiver through this Eventbrite page. Youth under 18 must have their legal guardian approve the waiver on their behalf. Volunteers age 12 & under require an accompanying adult.

Parking: Park in the main gravel parking lot at Pearson-Arastradero Preserve. In the event that the lot is full, staff will open up the gate to the auxillary parking lot to the left of the entrance.

Alternate transportation: Please carpool or bike, if possible. Arastradero is a short drive or bike ride from the I-280 Page Mill Park & Ride. There is a bike rack next to the bathrooms at Arastradero.

Meeting space: Walk past the information kiosk in the parking lot, down the concrete path through the gateway garden. Check in with staff next to the first brown building on your left.

Prepare for Working Outdoors:

  • Water bottle

  • Long pants, long sleeves recommended

  • Sturdy close-toed shoes that can get dirty

  • Hat/sunscreen or rain gear/boots

  • Plan for potential exposure to sun, poison oak, ticks

We will provide gloves, tools, and light snacks.




Grassroots Ecology encourages people from all identities and backgrounds to participate in our programs. Many of our programs are outdoors and involve moving and working in a variety of landscapes. If you have accessibility concerns (i.e., allergies, limited mobility, learning differences), our projects are flexible and we are happy to work with you. Please reach out to the workday facilitator so we can best prepare for your participation.
