A walk sponsored by Marin County Parks through shaded forests and serpentine clearings will reward us with a variety of natural wonders as we explore the upper reaches of the canyon, which still holds water and acts as a magnet for wildlife. This walk is for ages 15 and up. They request that no animals (except service animals) attend. High fire danger may cancel: Call (415) 893-9527 after 7a.m. on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. Questions: Shannon Burke at SBurke@marincounty.org or (415) 893-9520. Meet at the gate at the end of Cascade Dr. Parking is limited, so car-pool or ride your bicycle to the trailhead.
Join Marin County Parks for the monthly drop-in volunteer workday as they focus on restoring the grasslands of Ring Mountain! Ring Mountain is home to numerous rare and endangered plants, but this habitat is being threatened by invasive species. Volunteer work may include invasive species removal, seed collecting, tarping, and/or installing native plants. Educational components include the discussion of the plants that inhabit this unique place and explanations of how volunteer activities are having a positive impact. Drop-in days are held on the last Saturday of every month (except November and Decem-ber). Volunteer work is mildly strenuous and involves bending, pulling, and kneeling, and usually requires a short hike to the site. Dress in layers you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water. Please bring gloves if you have them. Snacks and extra water will be provided. RSVPs are appreciated but not required. Questions or to RSVP: Contact Ring Mountain Stewardship Coordinator Sarah Minnick (415) 473-5058.
