Lend a Helping Hand on Green Gulch Creek, December 20, 2014

Posted on December 10, 2014 at 1:28 PM by Ann Vallee

Volunteers needed! Help restore habitat along Green Gulch Creek near Muir Beach on Saturday, December 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. We’ll be planting native plants along a newly constructed streambed to stabilize the bank and create a healthy stream ecosystem for fish and other wildlife. This workday complements larger restoration efforts by Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy (GGNPC) at Muir Beach. The goal is to restore farmland to natural habitat to help endangered salmon and trout.

WSP_logoThis event will be led by members of the AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Program (WSP), along with Green Gulch Farm, MMWD, and GGNPC. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome!

Parking is permitted in the Muir Beach parking lot but space may be limited. Carpooling is recommended from the west parking lot of Tamalpais High School on Almonte Boulevard in Mill Valley at 8:30 a.m.

Lunch, refreshments, tools, and safety equipment will be provided. Please bring water and appropriate attire for landscaping activity, including close-toed shoes, extra layers, and rain gear.

For more information and to sign up, contact our Volunteer Program at 415-945-1128 or volunteerprogram@marinwater.org.

The mission of the WSP is to conserve, restore, and enhance anadromous watersheds for future generations by linking education with high-quality scientific practices. A program of the California Conservation Corps, WSP is one of the most productive programs for future employment in natural resources.
