Help pull and remove invasive iceplant (Carpobrotus) to enhance coastal strand habitat on the Silver Strand State Beach bayside! Volunteers will use hand tools to complete this work. Iceplant covered much of the bayside until the mid-2000’s when a removal effort began and to our delight, native plants flourished where the iceplant once dominated. Today, the effort continues to remove invasive weeds to make space for beach evening-primrose and other native dune plants to grow. Ages 12 and older are welcome (minors must be accompanied by an adult and bring a signed waiver by their guardian). Lunch will be provided.
