Broom Bust

Saturday, February 19 9:00 a.m. to noon

Fire suppression, Sudden Oak Death, and other large-scale changes threaten the Watershed’s oak woodlands and grasslands, and the plants and animals that depend on them to survive. Much work is underway on Bon Tempe’s lakeshore to restore this landscape. Help us improve this habitat by removing invasive French broom. This event will involve some hiking, expect about 1.5 miles of easy hiking/walking along Pine Point Trail. Meet at the Lake Lagunitas Parking Lot.

Family friendly. Minors under the age of 16 must have a guardian present. Those ages 16-18 must have permission from a guardian. Please bring a water bottle, closed toe shoes and clothes for variable weather. Bring your lunch. We will provide tools, breakfast snacks and water!

Mission Statement

To manage our natural resources in a sustainable manner and to provide our customers with reliable, high-quality water at a reasonable price.

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.
