Volunteer with the Native Plant Patrol!

August 11, 2017 - 9:00am
End time: 

The Point Lobos Native Plant Patrol meets the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month from 9 am – 1 pm. We are a volunteer group that works to restore native habitats in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Activities change every week but may include: weeding invasive species, seed collecting, planting, etc.

All are welcome, no experience necessary. Please bring water and wear clothing to protect yourself from poison oak, ticks, and weather. Gloves and a snack will be provided. We will work rain or shine but end early if conditions are unpleasant. If you are interested in joining, please rsvp to Julia Fields, restoration ecologist.

Directions: Take Highway 1 South past Carmel. Continue to the turnoff on the right for Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. When entering the Reserve, let the kiosk attendant know your name. They will have a list of volunteers and will allow you to enter at no cost. Enter the Reserve and turn left down the service road opposite the turn to Whaler’s Cove. Park and meet at the Rat Hill parking area to gather tools and carpool to the work site. Thank you!
