Join us at the beautiful Sonoma Valley Regional Park for a morning of invasive plant removal. Volunteers will work with staff to remove invasive French broom (Genista monspessulana) from the Sonoma Creek corridor. French broom is a strong competitor and displaces native plants by forming dense stands resulting in an overall loss of biodiversity. Help us keep our native plant community at Sonoma Valley Regional Park vibrant and healthy by removing these plants. With a little elbow grease you can be a part of protecting our natural resources.
Meet in the Highway 12 parking lot for a prompt 9 a.m. start. Tools, gloves, drinks and snacks will be provided. Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, long pants, long-sleeve shirt, hat and sunscreen and are encouraged to bring their own water bottle. Heavy rain cancels.
Volunteers 13 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Older, unaccompanied minors must come with a signed parental permission slip (227 kB).
To register, please contact Volunteer Coordinator John Ryan at 565-3356 or John.Ryan@sonoma-county.org.
