Throughout Santa Clara Valley non-native plant species are forcing out our native plants, in some cases drastically altering local ecosystems. Volunteers help us restore local habitat by removing these invasive species.
Be prepared to do some good, old fashioned work such as trail brushing, or removing common non-native plants such as Yellow Star Thistle, Mustard Weed, Tree of Heaven, and Dittrichia.
No special skills are required. The work may be moderately strenuous. Tools, work gloves, and snacks will be provided. Please bring your own water bottle. Water will be available to refill your bottle.
This is a rain or shine event. Sturdy hiking shoes, long pants, long sleeve shirt, and sun or rain protection are highly recommended.
Almaden Quicksilver County Park Habitat Restoration is Saturday, November 12, 2011 from 9am-1pm. For more information, call the Parks Volunteer Program Office at 408-355-2254.
