Removing crayfish helps restore the creek for native species.


Join us to preserve and protect the streams and creeks of the Malibu Creek Watershed. The invasive, non-native crayfish are harmful to the ecosystem of the Santa Monica Mountains. They prey on native species, reduce water quality, and cause problems with creek bed erosion. We need your help in trapping and removing the crayfish, recording data, and picking up trash in the creeks.

This opportunity is flexible for volunteers. We have Biological Technicians that are trapping in the creeks 7 days a week and could use the extra help from volunteers.

We are currently trapping at Malibu Creek at Tapia Park in Malibu Creek State Park.

Please Note:

Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a signed Parental Consent Form.

This volunteer opportunity may include wading into the creeks. Volunteers should be comfortable with wearing a pair of waders and being in the outdoor environment.
