Calling all nature lovers for our last broom pull of the season! Our grassy meadows are home to sun-loving plants and animals and are hunting grounds for birds of prey. The fruits of our open canopy hardwoods - oak, bay and madrone trees - nourish abundant forest wildlife. Help us improve these oak woodland and grassland habitats near Phoenix Lake by removing invasive French broom. Uncover healthy plant communities that support a high diversity of wildlife, preparing them for success in the new year.

We will start our morning overlooking Phoenix Lake. If driving, please arrive at Natalie Coffin Greene Park between 8:40 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. We will have the gate open to allow volunteers to drive up the fire road and park next to the dam. Folks arriving after 9 a.m. or leaving before noon will need to manage their own parking.

Registration is encouraged but not required. The event is family-friendly! Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and volunteers under age 18 must bring a permission form signed by a parent or guardian. Tools, gloves, snacks and water are provided. Please dress for variable weather and bring a personal water bottle. We welcome the rain and will only cancel if extreme winds or heavy downpour is expected! Call 415-945-1128 after 7am the morning of the event to hear event updates.

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.
