Volunteers needed to help with plantings
Volunteers are needed on two Saturdays in February to help
preserve UCSC's natural environment.
A native plant revegetation/planting day has been organized
for February 12 at Younger Lagoon Reserve, part of the UCSC
Natural Reserves system. Volunteers will be planting a variety
of native species to support habitat restoration efforts and
have the opportunity to learn about native plant and animal
communities and their invasive competitors.
Volunteers will meet at the Barn Theater at the main campus
entrance at 10 a.m. to carpool to Younger Lagoon and should
bring water and lunch. The workday will last until 2 p.m. To
find out more or RSVP, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
or check the Natural
Reserves web site.
On February 26, a site stewardship field day in the Long Marine
Lab area will include interplanting and maintenance of earlier
native plantings and removing exotic invasive species.
Volunteers should meet at the patio in front of the Center
for Ocean Health at Long Marine Lab at 10 a.m. to work until
2 p.m. or arrange to take the carpool from the Upper Quarry
Bookstore Plaza. To find out more or RSVP, e-mail email@example.com,
or check the Site
Stewardship web site.
Both work projects will be canceled only in case of hard rain.
