Broom Bust

Upcoming Habitat Restoration dates are Saturdays on Jan 22, Jan 29, Feb 19, Mar 19 from 9 AM to 12 PM. We will be removing French broom from oak woodlands in order to uncover and encourage the native plants to grow!

Throughout the year, we have opportunities to learn about Mt. Tamalpais' unique plant and animal life while contributing to their continued survival. Individuals, groups, non-profit organizations, and families are all invited and encouraged to attend. This program focuses on invasive species control with a special emphasis on French Broom and Douglas-fir. We always try to select sites that are both scenic and accessible.

Family friendly! Meeting location is Lake Lagunitas parking lot at 9am sharp! Parking passes provided to volunteers. If you have questions contact volunteerprogram@marinwater.org or 415-945-1128. Minors under the age of 16 must have a guardian present. Those ages 16-18 must have a signed permission form. Please bring a water bottle, closed toe shoes and clothes for variable weather. We will provide tools and instruction.

Per Marin County COVID-19 Status Update for November 1, 2021 masks are not required outdoors. Volunteers will receive sanitized tools and gloves; no tools will be shared. Staff will emphasize what a minimum distance of six feet looks like and why social distancing is important to maintain throughout the program. Volunteers must bring their own water and food.

Description

The MMWD volunteer program strives to connect people to nature and their water source by offering hands-on activities on the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed.

Volunteers are currently engaged in habitat restoration, trails maintenance, environmental education, biological monitoring and geographic information systems mapping.

Through their experiences volunteers gain skills, become stewards, contribute to the health and safety of the watershed and have fun while doing so.

MMWD manages 18,500 acres of land in the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed and 2,750 acres adjacent to the Nicasio and Soulajule reservoirs in west Marin. The Mt. Tamalpais Watershed has been identified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a key component of a biosphere reserve, a designation given to biodiversity hot spots like the Amazon rainforest.
