Ring Mountain Grassland Restoration

May 27, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Come to Ring Mountain to help Marin County Parks restore habitat on this special volunteer day. We’ll venture out to see the endangered Tiburon mariposa lily and remove invasive plants that threaten their existence. Invasive yellow star and tocolote thistle were once a thriving population on the rise, but our efforts have yielded positive results. We have eradicated yellow star thistle and tocolote star thistle is on a steep decline. We’ll finish our day with storytelling and activities for kids! Join us to become part of a habitat restoration success story. Drop in days are held on the last Saturday of every month (except November and December). All skill levels are welcome and no previous experience is necessary. All ages are welcome; anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Dress in layers you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water. Please bring gloves if you have them. Snacks, lunch and extra water will be provided. In the event of heavy rain and/or high winds call (415) 473-3778 to find out about event status. In the event of cancellation, program will be rescheduled. RSVP’s are appreciated but not required.
