Pillar Point Bluff is a gorgeous coastal park located on bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Its scenic views and variety of trails make it popular with hikers and dog walkers alike, providing a wonderful getaway to a natural space filled with coastal scrub and greenery. If you want to help protect this habitat, or just spend some time doing good while enjoying the beautiful scenery, come join us Saturday, November 13th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm! At this event, we will be planting a variety of coastal prairie natives, with the potential for weeding if timing permits.

As we will be working with tools and plant species, it is necessary to wear closed-toed shoes, hiking/outdoor clothing you are comfortable with potentially getting dirty, and to bring a personal water bottle. It's also important to check the weather beforehand and bring a rain/warm coat, a hat, and/or sunscreen if necessary! Please note that if weather conditions are too extreme, this event may be canceled; however, we will reach out to let you know if we foresee any potential of this occurring.

We will be following current state protocols in regards to COVID-19 (subject to change by the time of the event). For now, we ask that you consider wearing face masks/coverings when unable to socially distance, and we will also be keeping the event size at a maximum of 15 people, though actual attendance will vary depending on how many people sign up.

Be sure to check our website in the upcoming weeks for more potential volunteer events! If interested in receiving emails about future events, send an email to kewright@smcgov.org to sign up for our mailing list.
