Volunteer Work Days for Habitat Restoration

MAS relies on volunteers for improving local habitats. Currently we have two active restoration sites, Triangle Marsh in Corte Madera and Bahia in Novato. Volunteers assist with planting local native plants some of which we grow in small nursery beds, and help us in the control of invasive non-native plants, a process that is essential to the survival of the new natives.

Habitat Stewardship Triangle Marsh
Host: Bob Hinz, email: rbrthnz@comcast.net, phone: 415-383-8688
Start Date: Saturday, October 7, 2017
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Description: The reproductive year for most plants in the uplands is about over. Gumplant (Grindelia), a native plant at the edge of marshes, is still full of flowers and attracting many insects (above). Bristly ox-tongue, a yellow-flowered non-native from the Mediterranean, still has some flowers, but it's looking pretty bad because the deer find it very tasty. Grindelia does not get browsed. Bristly ox-tongue does spread readily and it might be one plant for our Saturday workday. We will continue to look for the last stinkweed. Western ragweed (Ambrosia psilostachya), a California native that we have planted at Bahia and Triangle Marsh, is looking very good even now at the end of August and is beginning to flower. We have the tools, gloves and snacks. We generally work until about 1 PM, but even an hour is valuable help. Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend. Meet at 10 AM on Paradise Drive directly across from the main Ring Mountain trailhead.
