Mt. Tam Habitat Restoration at Lake Lagunitas - Hosted by MMWD

About the MMWD Habitat Restoration Program
Throughout the year, the MMWD has opportunities to learn about Mt. Tam’s unique plant and animal life while contributing to their continued survival. Events generally take place on the third Saturday of each month. Individuals, groups, non-profit organizations, and families are all invited and encouraged to attend. This program focuses on invasive species control with a special emphasis on French broom and Douglas fir. Sites are chosen to be scenic and accessible. Meeting locations vary; please visit the MMWD website for up-to-date information and see the online map for all restoration event locations.
