Volunteer Work Days for Habitat Restoration

MAS relies on volunteers for improving local habitats. Currently we have two active restoration sites, Triangle Marsh in Corte Madera and Bahia in Novato. Volunteers assist with planting local native plants some of which we grow in small nursery beds, and help us in the control of invasive non-native plants, a process that is essential to the survival of the new natives.

For helping with restorations and other volunteer opportunities please contact our .

Habitat Stewardship at Triangle Marsh
Host: Robert Hinz, at rbrthnz@comcast.net or 415-383-8688
Start Date: Saturday, May 6, 2017
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Description: There is moisture in the soil. The sun is higher. The days are longer and warmer. Plants are growing like weeds. Unfortunately in our marsh restorations many of the plants are weeds and they are about to prepare the next generation. Radish and mustard have begun to bloom and Italian thistle will bloom soon. Pulling them now will show benefits next year. Recent transplants would benefit from controlling the non-native grasses that might be shading them. We have the tools, gloves and snacks. We generally work until about 1 PM, but even an hour is valuable help. Everyone is welcome. Meet at 10 AM on Paradise Drive directly across from the main Ring Mountain Trailhead.
