ELKHORN SLOUGH: GARDEN DAYS, Dec 17, 9:30 – 11:30 AM

“Learn the in’s and out’s of native plant landscaping while helping the Reserve maintain our new native gardens! Each third Saturday we spend time exploring a new topic in native plant gardening, and then work on a project in the gardens. Work changes with the season and may involve weeding, planting, or collecting native seeds. All ages and abilities are welcome, but everyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.” Info and sign up HERE.

Groundswell Coastal Ecology: Pilkington Creek Community Restoration Day, Jan 8, 10 am – 1 pm

“A dedicated group of volunteer land stewards is working to replace invasive plants with a glorious diversity of native plants. These plants provide structural habitat as well as produce nectar, berries, seeds that support many species of animals. Come join your local community in restoring this riparian woodland to native habitat. Help make this a refuge for birds and pollinators and learn about stream ecology. Meet at Tyrrell Park (by the Museum of Natural History), 1305 E Cliff Dr.” More INFO.
